    There's a reason everyone gets it! I just picked up one used with 4k miles on it and can't wait to get it on.

    Speaking of which...do you have any better pics of the back of your car? I'd like to see a little more detail on how it looks with the XL hangers.

    Ill post some pictures either on lunch or after work, because I cannot post any pictures from my work computer.

    There is a 35mm difference between the noraml 12mm kartboy hangers and the XL hangers, so I cant image the exhaust sitting that much higher.

    Cool. I was just debating using stockers over the XL ones and a nice pic for comparison would be helpful. Thanks!

    I bought my '12 WRB WRX on the 11th of Feb 2012. How many miles do you have on it now? I'm just about to hit 40k ;(

    I just broke 30,000 which is kind of depressing. You must drive a lot because I thought I was putting on a lot of miles on my car.

    Yeah, don't be too depressed. I should be the depressed one! Lol but she's been a great DD and traveler. I've finally settled down but it's about a 23 mile drive one way to work now so I'll eventually rack up more miles again -_-

    That pic looks good...would you mind taking one from dead on in the back? I'm trying to decide if XL hangers are the way to go or if it will look better just tucked up in there using the stock hangers.

    I've got 36k on my 2012 WRX...I'm the second owner. I've put 8k miles on it myself since August 2 when I bought it.

    You are in luck because I don't feel like working today, hahaha

    Here is a shoot look at the car from eye level


    And here is one kneeling down pretty low


    IMO because there is a 35 mm difference the stock hangers will be to high but I could be wrong.

    Also I still need to adjust the hangers to make it sit a little more level. Didn't get a chance on Saturday since the install of the downpipe was a nightmare (ended up having to cut a bolt off but went through 4 blades trying to do so).
