APR RSC Installed but saggy in the rear

Can anyone confirm if this was simply a botched install? The rear muffler seems to be way off and too low. I'm banging speed bumps with it

I'd take it back to NGP and have them fix it. It shouldn't sag down like that. APR exhausts (when done right) look perfect, but they are very very hard to align correctly.

If you really zoom in, it does look like it's sagging. The muffler appears angled down in the front. Maybe this was to get the tips tight with the valence? It's definitely not right, although they did do a good job getting the tips lined up.

Yep, he took a good amount of time lining the tips up and they look perfect however in the order of importance that is near last. They're going to have to losen all the clamps and re-adjust the whole thing again I think. The pipe/muffler section needs to be tilted upwards, it will be interesting to see how they get the tips to line up after that tho.

Mine sags as well, but the tips are straight. I think that is just how it is, honestly the only thing I hate about my exhaust. :-/

Mine also sags to the side a little bit but only noticeable when you look under the car I think its normal. My tips poke out A LOT compared to yours. Also if you didn't want to bang speed bumps why you lower your car so much.

APR exhausts are extremely hard to install on the same level as APR themselves. You should take it back and get them to align it or deal with a shop that installs APR exhausts at least once a week.
