Debadged and Quad added need opinions

So, on Friday i got my car debadged and added some quads, problem is im not too sure about the quads. i feel they are too big and look a little bit too "add on". Im going tomorrow to rework the car so i would like to get some opinions. What im thinking of doing is making the exhaust smaller and moving it up into the bumper about two inches. any comments?
(Here are the pictures sorry for the quality took them as fast as i could at a friends house)

the stance on those quads does seem a bit wider, I'm not sure that it looks bad though.

Those are just tips? and not the full exhaust?

I kind of like it. Just because the e46 m3 started the trend of center quad exhaust doesnt mean yours looks bad. Lots of cars still have quad exhaust wider apart.

I wouldn't want to base my answer to that soley off the picture. I'd have to see the pipes in person or at least a short video clip with the car in motion.

jp335 is selling a hamann rear diffuser right now to house quads. I think you should buy it, and add the pipes in that...it will look really hot. here is a picture for reference:

I really like it, it gives a very aggressive yet classy look because of the tips you chose, if anything i would bring them a little more central and maybe move them back a little so that it fits a tiny bit more flush
but overall, nice job

Who said i spent 4k? This isn't my only car and I'm happy with the car i got i have nothing to prove to anyone and if im adding quads it's for pure aesthetic reasons and not for perfomance otherwise as you said i would've gotten a 335i. Im not trying to fool anyone just trying to make my car look good.
