Where to buy this rear diffuser?

I don't want to have to buy a new exhaust and bumper.

Fairly certain that photo is of a tailor made car. The diffuser will be a BRABUS part.

Apparently the US-bound version has the stock exhaust whereas the European version has a different exhaust and rear bumper:

Did you know that the exhaust tips are just for looks? The actual exhaust exits on the bottom of the muffler can. Seems like a lot of extra work to me. Why not just use an exhaust like the early US spec Brabus?

This looks like the rear valance for the US 453 version of the Brabus. You should be able to order it by paying a visit to your smart Center's parts dept. You will probably have to acquire a VIN from a 2017 Brabus. Hopefully, your smart Center will have one in stock for you to copy the VIN. Very few US Brabus versions will be available.

A 453 647 05 00 Code: E56+P71
or
A 453 647 06 00 Code: A04+E56

E56 Daimler/Smart Brand
P71 Brabus Sport-Package
A04 Smart Brabus

Too sleepy to figure out which one is the right one. Can't tell from the picture, it shows the one with the exhaust holes.

The US Brabus has no exhaust holes in the rear valance.

Correct... why I want to buy it. The stock butt looks lame, IMO.
