E92 exhaust vs E90 exhaust

I have a E92 with a Eisenmann Race exhaust. I might be trading the car for a E90 M3. Is the only difference in the exhaust the connecting pipes? Could i swap exhaust by keeping each connecting pipe with the original car and just swapping mufflers? Sorry if this has been covered before but cannot find anything. By just looking at the exhaust it doesn't look too different.

e92's are longer then e90's so the tips will stick out a bit, fitment it self with your mid/connecting pipes is all the same

UNLESS YOU HAVE AN E93

Thanks. I would really like to keep my exhaust but don't want it to look silly with longer tips outback.

riyatch is correct the tips are longer on the Eisenmann coupe system. The only way for the tips to look fine is by adding a diffuser.

I thought the tips wouldn't look bad, but they REALLY stick out on an e90... if you get a diffuser isn't not that bad. (main thing is changing the angle of the bumper where it meets the tips)

Nate@ind, just curious, which diffuser do you like on the e90?
