Exclamation Meisterschaft GT fits with a diffuser? Can anyone please confirm?

Am on the verge of ordering this exhaust but there are some posts about the GT being too close to the OEM bumper and therefore doesn't have enough room to clear a diffuser? I am not sure if the folks with this issue were not installing the exhaust correctly or is this really an issue?

Can anyone please confirm if they are successfully running a Meister GT with a diffuser, preferably post a picture. I have a Vorsteiner Type II diffuser on my E90 and don't want to ep ordering the GT only to find out that it touches the diffuser.

Please help

Look at the diffuser thread http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=792651 ... Most of those cars have non-OEM exhausts, and should give you an idea of what you're facing. Searching that same forum might also yield an answer for you.

I;ve seen the GTC Meisterschaft with a diffuser and it fit/looked great. I had the GT2 originally and sold it for another exhaust because the tips looked recessed when it was paired with a diffuser. I dont think it actually makes contact with the diffuser, but it does not look good because the tips dont come out far enough. To this day I still am unsure how that guy's GTC Meiseterschaft looked perfect with a diffusor, maybe they cut the xpipe in a different place for the xpipe? Not sure. I know the car was an AutoCouture build and had an ess vt2-625 on it. I'm sure if you PM'ed Sal he would be able to send you some pics and tell you how that guy got his exhaust to look perfect under there !

So after talking extensively with GT Haus I finally ordered the GT for the E90. Turns out that their newest version of the GT has the same exhaust across the board for a E90/92/93. They all use the same cannnister and are the same size as far as the body of the exhaust goes, the only difference is the tip length which is 3cm longer for the coupes and convertible. No more different canisters (barbell/indented, etc), they all have the same cannnister now.

Will post feedback on fitment once I get it.

Thanks. Just saw your exhaust. Looks really good. I think you may have had a E92 one.

It was an E90/E92 one. They had made one to fit both, but it looked a bit long on the E90.
