ARKYM rear diffuser w/ Akrapovic

Hey guys. Looking for some feedback from those E92/3 running the ARKYM rear diffuser and Akrapovic exhaust.

How's the clearance for the titanium tips? I've had to remove my hamann replica diffuser cos the tips were too big. Do they rub at all? If yes what are there options I have for diffusers with the huge ass Akra tips?

Thanks a bunch!

The clearance will be tight for sure.

Any issues with the heat from the tips damaging the clearcoat on the diffuser?

sorry what're you guys using to stick the diffuser to the bumper? i know there are 4 screws in front but i used 3M auto tape and it's not holding, i'm thinking of going for the BMW betalink glue.

Betalink not needed. The 3M should be more than enough if done properly. My advice is to leave the car out in the sun for a few hours before installing to warm the bumper. Make sure the bumper is clean before installing.

I never had any issues when I had mine with about 10 track days. When I sold my diffuser it had no damage or markings from exhaust heat.
