Tx.
The photos I've found have showed the tips sunken in and not flush. I personally have not seen a meisterschaft system with a rear diffuser but would love to.

I think most diffusers will work but it doesn't seem like the meisterschaft crowd have diffusers. Prove me wrong!!!
Just bought a challenge diffuser and it does not fit with my meisterschaft exhaust. Mind u i have the super GT. From what i have gathered it seems most people with meisterschafts either dont run diffusers because of the clearance or the sunken look.

Can you please elaborate? Are you saying hat there is not enough gap vertically between the OEM bumper and the Meisterschaft exhaust so when you put in a diffuser it touches?

Thanks.

Thanks.
These are photos I took of my exhaust and as you can see the room between my bumper and my exhaust is very small. What I am saying is that I can not fit the challenge diffuser into that space at all. I shouldn't have to drop my exhaust to have to install this diffuser. The problem I face is I have to modify my exhaust hangers drop it to give it enough clearance. However this still might not work... The other route I might go is to sell my exhaust or the diffuser. Not an ideal situation nonetheless. Hope this helps.

Thanks am wondering if the tips are thicker on the super GT. Can you confirm? And is yours a E90 or a E92?

Anyone else have similar issues on their GT with running a diffuser?

The tips are 4x83mm. I believe all of meistershafts tips are that. I have an e92 for the record.

Look at the third video in this thread. Seems to work fine with a diffuser.

Also look at the pictures in this thread. Most of them are running diffusers. Seems fine. I am in the process of ordering the exhaust and really need to confirm this

I dont know what to tell you. Im the oddball with the super gt. I cant vouch for any other type of exhaust. Maybe someone else can chime in. I just know in my situation it will not work. I dont want to steer you in the wrong direction. Sorry i couldnt be of more help.
