Need exhaust fitment help!

Installing the BB exhaust but I think they sent me the wrong one. I have a coupe and I think this is the shorter sedan version, but not sure. I kinda like the look vs poking out but am concerned about bumper deforming from the heat. What do you think, too short or correct??

Right part # on the box, believe it's the wrong item in the box. Even if it's technically wrong, what do you guys think of the fitment just the same? Do you think the bumper is too exposed to exhaust tip heat? Compared to other pics and vids of this exhaust I've seen, it's about 3/4" short, but I kinda like the look. Concerned about the bumper damage potential though.

I don't think it's gonna be an issue really. If it doesn't bother you that they sit the way they do then leave it like that. Problem is when you run it really hard on the track (if catless) tips get really hot and gases come out very very hot. Just keep an eye on it or hold off and talk to the vendor which is what I would do.

Also keep in mind that when its running and exhaust is hot it tends to sick out a little more about 1/4"-1/2"

Forgot about expansion- that would make up most of the difference. This is a street car with cats in tact. Occasionally track day though. Thanks

Decided to keep this look.Here's both sides installed. I prefer less poke anyway. The BB adds a nice rumble. No fart can here. Sounds more like a big bore V8. Looking forward to it getting broken in. Thanks.
