E30 exhaust problem

I have an 87 325is and did the bumper converison and added an mtech 2 rep rear valance and the exhaust is just touching the rear apron. I was going to just heat up and bend the stock tips over to the left to clear the apron. Any suggestions?

thats all i would do with yours just bent the tips to the left a bit, would look sweet, find 2 trees or something that would just fit inbetween the pipe and heat it up, i got a small propane torch if you want. and just bent it around.

just use the die grinder to cut them off. then we can cut the tips on an angle then weld them on.
