RPi Exhaust Axle-Back and Rear Diffusor

So, i've been looking for a diffusor for my e92 M3 but I heard that the axle-back and the diffusors dont fit together and will burn a hole? Please let me know if I am wrong and which diffusors will fit. Thanks!

I had the RPi axle back fitted on my car and it cleared the diffuser...but the tips had to be adjusted a bit to make them not touch the diffuser...just used spacers and a bit of force to get the tips where you want them. You can see the pic of the diffuser and RPi tips in my sig.

Thanks for the reply!
The tips are adjustable???
What spacers did you use? and what part did you have to give force?
Is that a Arkym diffusor? or Vorsteiner? Looks sweet!

Well yea you have to ghetto rig it a bit lol...my tech used washers and longer bolts on the hanger mounts, and also went to work on the hangers with a wrench to bend them a bit. It sounds really bad but it's really no big deal hahaha

Just tiny adjustments here and there to make them sit right

Diffuser is a 3D Design Replica

Most aftermarket exhaust systems including the RPI you have can be adjusted to have the tips centered, without risking any burn damage on the diffuser/bumper itself.

Below is an example of a color matched PWC ARKYM diffuser, in which we had to adjust the Meisterschaft GTC exhaust tips as whoever installed it previously did not align the tips properly....and it ended up touching and melting part of the OEM bumper...



I think you'll be happy with the ARKYM diffuser.

We've got a CF 1X1 Mesh in stock, along with 2 Matte Black PWC ones (which we can paint to gloss or color match).

Feel free to let me know if you'd like a price
