Suggestions/318is Muffler issue

Ok im getting a muffler for my 91 318is. Problem is that on this car the tip is at an angle when it comes out of the hole in the rear rockguard. This pretty much screws me for getting a magnaflow muffler complete with tip. So im going to set this offset mufler back there and run a few feet of pipe STRAIGHT through the hole (hopefully) Do you guys think there is ehough room to move the muffler to the drivers side enough to allow a straight shot at the hole in the rockguard (hence the reason i chose the offset muffler)???
*Note that the stock muffler is huge compared to this one so im hoping there is enough room.

Anyone done this before???

The muffler i chose is the one thats underlined in the list below:

2.25 14" 20" 12225
2.5 14" 20" 12226

2 18" 24" 12254
2.25 18" 24" 12255
2.5 18" 24" 12256
3 24" 30" 12289
3 18" 24" 12259
2.5 24" 30" 12286
