Question Will VRS Type 2 Rear diffuser fit with Dinan exhaust?

Had this in "Cosmetic" forum, but no bites...

As a newbie to M3 mods, I was excited that I have just received a VRS type 2 rear diffuser and was looking into mounting it when I ran into a snag... Seems to be quite snug with the Dinan exhaust tips!

I had the exhaust installed by the dealer, so I am not sure if there is a way to adjust the distance between the tips and the bumper/diffuser. I can fit the diffuser inbetween, but the tips are right up against the diffuser... seems like a problem (melting the diffuser?).

Has anyone made this combo work? Any tips on the mount? My diffuser did not come with mounting tape... should it have? What tape/adhesive should I use?

Thanks for any help!

Your diffuser definitely should have come with tape. You need to get 3M double sided tape. There should be some adjustability in the positioning of your exhaust so you can drop it and get more clearance to the diffuser. Here is my thread where I installed the VRS Type 2 diffuser:
