AA sig. tip hanging low

Anyone know what needs to be adjusted on the AA sig exhaust so that the driver side tip doesnt hang lower than the passenger side tips?

See my sketch its a quick drawing I made in paint to illustrate how the tip is hanging lower than the rest...

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

If the muffler is aligned (straight, not crooked), it's either a defective muffler (tube welded crooked) or shipping damage IMO. The tip adjusts in and out (for E90s and E92), not up and down.

Needless to say, if muffler is crooked, just loosen the clamp and realign it. Good luck man, and keep us posted. Bump for you .

I used a lift and a big pry bar to get mine installed correct. I had same issue.

If it's the newer version of the AA you need to adjust the bracket that mounts to the exhaust hangers at the very rear of the car. If you follow their instructions they will tell you to hold each muffler high enough to make contact with the bumper. Once you've tightened everything down it should droop just a tad, and line up correctly. Hope this helps .
