The Last AWE Midpipe for my 328i Xdrive (N26)

New to this forum, so would like to say hello!

I have a 2014 328i Xdrive (N26) I acquired in February 2021.
Couldn't keep it stock forever especially with the low miles (<33k as of 6/5/21)

I made a purchase back on 4/11/21 with XLR8.com as they had offered the following items on their website.

- AWE S-Flo Carbon Intake (2660-13034)
- AWE Touring Axle-Back Exhaust Single Side w/ Diamond Black tips (3010-23022)
- AWE Performance Mid Pipe for N26 (3015-11016)

After the 1st week I received the intake which has been a great addition for my car, but I am still here sitting without the Exhaust and Midpipe.

I contacted XLR8 to see when I would receive the 2 other items but every attempt to receive a follow up, they failed to even call back with any information. (Lead time was never provided online)

It led me to make multiple calls with AWE as to when I could expect the items and every single time I called, they gave me a longer lead time from 2-4 weeks, to 6-8 and now a 10 week lead time.

How long exactly it takes for a company to manufacture an exhaust they will probably never tell me, but I discovered through another company, (Extreme Powerhouse) that AWE had discontinued the Midpipe for the N26 and are only building them for N20 engines.

I have yet to even send anything about this to XLR8, but I called AWE once more to confirm and indeed I will be receiving the exhaust and midpipe as it is coming out of production in their facility, next week.

Could this very well be the last Midpipe they will ship out for the N26?

What else is different between the N20 and N26 other than having a secondary cat on the stock midpipe? (Different fitments for the exhaust or locations?)
