    Anyone with q300 or nameless Abe?

    So I'm trying to decide on an exhaust upgrade that will give a bit more growl than stock but won't drone in the cabin for easy cruises and long trips. I've been looking for a while and have probably watched/listened to every video posted on YouTube and exhaust related forum threads...I think I've officially reached the end of the Internet. What's annoying is that I know there are no videos out there that can capture what it really is like...so I was curious if there was anyone in the Springfield area that would be willing to meet up and show me what you have so I can hear it first hand. I just would hate to drop hundreds of dollars and time installing just to realize I don't like it.

    Thanks all!

    I have a Q300 on my car. If you do not like drone, I do not recommend getting it.

    Ooh,hang on. That is the throb of a turbocharged flat four engine. A sound which,all over the world,heralds the imminent arrival of a moron - JC.

    Cobb. Low sound, good price, in 5th gear at low/mid rpm there is no drone.

    I ended up buying a Nameless axleback with the magnaflow muffler, it gave me the low grumble that I wanted and gets loud if you want but very little drone at speed. You can barely hear it on the highway doing 70mph with the windows up. Bought it on this forum actually from a member for $300

    I live in Vegas... Search your local Subie forum and goto the meetups. I tried to find an exhaust in person but finally just but the bullet and bought it.

    I wouldn't buy your exhaust judging off of youtube videos. Find a local meet and go listen to some.

    I took a gamble on my nameless axle back - I like it a lot. I don't have many to compare it to, however.

    After throwing on a 3" mid pipe and catless down pipe... the car was pretty loud. Nothing unbearable at cruising speed, but cold starts would shake the house or wake people up =P

    ^^^This. Highly recommended. Even the acoustics on hatch vs sedan is different. The hatch version tends to drone a lot more than the sedan.

    I tried to take a video of my exhaust with an equal length manifold... agh. It sounded awful through the phone. Sounds pretty mean in person though.

    Even with a good microphone, you'll lose most of the 'personality' of the sound.
