Yeah we talked about the passenger side pipe having a slip fit with a clamp and the hanger be adjustable so that it can be adjusted to not hit the diffuser and account for some variance. This was just a mock up and the production one will not rub the diffuser

I wouldn't get it simply because it sticks the pipes too far out to the sides like the 1M. I like the pipes closer to the center of the car, like the E46M3 and Z4M etc. Just personal preference!
I wasnt a fan of the Hartage style. I have seen a few cars with it and I personally like the 1M style better. I think the back end of the car is too small to have the tips that close to each other like on the hartage/E46 M3. If someone wants to buy me a Hartage Style Diffuser, Im sure I could talk Megan Racing into producing an exhaust for that diffuser as well.

We talked about a black muffler as well because of how the muffler hangs and because they offer a black coating on some of their "stealth" mufflers already so it would be simple to do. I will let them know that the feedback we are getting is for a black muffler/one that is less visible. Thanks!
