So I stopped by R/T Tuning to talk about some parts I wanted to get and install on my vehicle. I told Will (the parts shop guy) that I wanted an intake, exhaust, and RBV/BOV/BPV. I'm mainly aiming for sound here.
My car is a DGM 2010 WRX STi Hatch, bone stock at the moment.
For the exhaust, I want something with a deep, low pitched rumble, and the burnt/rolled titanium look. He suggested the Invidia Q300. Link: Invidia USA.
For the intake, I'm not sure whether I want a cold air or short ram. I was reading some threads on here about CAI vs SRI, and it doesn't seem to matter drastically. And since I'm not trying to squeeze out max performance and mainly aim for looks/sound, I've narrowed it down to a few choices Will has at his warehouse.
First is the Cobb Short Ram Intake and box. With my research this one is louder than the other 2 I have lined up, but I don't just want volume; I want it to compliment the low pitched rumble of the exhaust. The problem I have with the Cobb is that it doesn't fit my color scheme. My car is DGM, and I want to go with a grey/red scheme. Since Cobb offers blue and black, it doesn't fit. I know I can get different filters and tubing or powder coat, but I feel it may not be worth it. Link: COBB Tuning - Subaru SF Intake and SF Airbox Kit
The other intake is the K&N Short Ram Intake. This one fits my color scheme, but I heard a few people say K&N is kind of crappy. Link: 69-8005TWR - K&N 69 Series Typhoon Kits, Performance Intake Kit direct from K&N
And lastly, there's the AEM Cold Air Intake. This also fits my scheme, and I know AEM is reputable. With all the ups and downs about CAI, I feel like it's not a huge risk and a consistent flow of cold air would be nice. However I don't really like the way short rams look in the engine bay better than cold airs. Link: 21-478WR - AEM , AEM Cold Air Intake System direct from AEM
For BOV/BPV/RBV, I was suggested the Cobb XLE BPV. It's adjustable, which is a huge plus. I'm trying to get that satisfying "psshh" sound, but I want it to flutter more than just a straight release. Link: Subaru XLE Bypass Valve

TL;DR - Looking for a DGM/red color scheme, and deep, low pitched rumble.
Looking for some input on these parts, and which will best suit what I'm looking for. Thanks in advance.
