Akra Just Installed

hey guys, i just installed my akrapovic exhaust with carbon fiber tips, I'm really pleased with the sound and aspect of the exhaust overall, however there is a slight problem i notice that the exhaust tips from the driver side are slightly more outside the diffuser than the ones on the passenger side, i can barely read the words akrapovic on the carbon fiber tips on the passenger side but the driver side seems perfect, anybody had this issue and what could be the mistake or problem that was made while installing? thanks guys. will post pictures tomorrow.

Yes...this sounds like an install issue. Take it back to the installer and show them.
If you are the installer....look at all the clamp points and adjust accordingly.
