    Father to be.

    Hi, I just got a 2014 WRX hatchback, I installed a Cobb air intake, and the Cobb AccessPort V3. My next avenue for the car is a exhaust, But being 34 years old and having a kid on the way I don't want that loud exhaust. I want something that is quiet but still give good performance.
    Any Ideas of who and what I should be looking at to meet those needs?

    Ill be honest I just put the OBX catback off ebay on my car and its absolutely beautiful. Its very quiet though. You can hear it a little but its very tame.

    SPT is pretty quite. Other than that all I know of from there is the Q300, but that is what I've read. I have no personal experience with anything other than the SPT.

    I personally have the SPT and can honestly say that my newborn (10 months now) goes to sleep right away in my car. I believe that the drone helps him fall asleep. Just my 2 pennies.

    I have a 2005, but my SPT is pretty soft. Still has the rumble, but not obnoxious in the least. My 5 year old loves the car. We will see when my new one pops out as well. Congrats btw.

    Ours is due may 29th? When is your partner expecting?

    If you have a hatchback,most if not all exhausts will drone in the the car. I would absolutely stay away from the Q300. The ones with the least drone seem to be the Madad whisper and the GReddy SP Elite.

    Whatever you buy try going to a local meet to hear some of the exhausts first. Remember,acoustics & exhaust designs are entirely different in a sedan vs a hatch. So ,you need to hear exhausts installed on hatchbacks only.
