Dinan Exhaust Fitment

Hey i've had my Dinan Exhaust on for about a year now but about 2 months ago i installed the resonator delete too. I've noticed that it sits really low and now the OEM section of the exhasut is ratteling on the mid chassis brace. Does anyone know how to get the exhaust to sit higher? Besides this fitment issue i love the exhaust, it makes the car sound so mean and the pops and burbles are amazing.

I've never messed with a Dinan exhaust but on most aftermarket exhausts you can loosen all the clamps, brace the exhaust up higher then re-tighten them.

the dinan exhaust is well known to sit very low. Unless you put on shorter hangers I don't see a way you can raise it

Yup. The 4th shop that played with the fitment got it to where I'm satisfied.

The 2nd shop (BMW dealership that is an authorized Dinan dealer) recommended me a part from AA if I wanted it to sit higher. I'll have to look back at the invoice for the exact part.

When I had the rattle the 3rd shop (BMW dealership) had to basically reinstall the exhaust. This is partly due to the 1st shop's poor installation.

Can you post yours so that I can see how low it is?

Yea ill get some during my lunch break, I dont want to have to reinstall my exahust since the resonator delete was incredibly hard to get onto the car. I may just take it to an exhaust shop and have them help me.
