Alfa 156 1.9jtd exhaust issue

Hi guys, I have a 2003 156 sportwagon 1.9JTD and recently bought a stainless exhaust from Cybox exhausts. I'm happy with the build quality and appearance of the exhaust, the only problem I'm having is that I'm about 5" short somewhere (insert joke here!) when I marry the exhaust up, all the brackets are off, and the tailpipe doesn't even clear my rear bumper, I've been in touch with them several times, they've checked and insists its the correct fitting for my car, they have been really helpful, and sent me a section of stainless to make up the sort fall, but this will mean taking it somewhere for chopping and welding.

As they were so insistent they had sent the correct exhaust, i'm wondering whether the existing front down pipe is the correct one, or is that too short, causing the whole exhaust to be further forward than it should? when looking, if the front downpipe was %" longer, the whole system would sit nicely and line up to the existing brackets.

they sent me this jig they work off, but the front downpipe on this jig inst the same as my existing down pipe, I have this one

does anyone know if there is a longer downpipe available that I should have on my alfa?

Any suggestions welcome, thanks
