Only you can tell what sounds right for you.Youtube videos do not do justice to the sound of any exhaust.

So to avoid disappointment & monetary loss it would be best if you went to one of your local meets or got in touch with someone near you who has the exhaust to hear it in person.

Hi Killpsibot,
Congrats in your new car. I have a 2012 and I have not complains about the sound of the factory exhaust. Sounds pretty good.
Before you mod the exhaust, just be sure that doesn't avoid your warranty.

Have you checked out the Nameless Performance cat-back?

Thought a cat back or axle back wouldn't void anything?

And the q300 has 2 versions, v1 and v2. I think v1 is nice and mellow while I've heard complaints about how loud v2 is.

i have the nameless axleback on mine. Just the muffler delete and it sounds amazing! Real deep rumble and everything! Costs about 330 tax and shipping altogether. Plus it doesnt void your warranty.

You won't have any warranty issues with a cat-back exhaust.

No offense but what does "look cheap" mean?

Truth: Nameless is handmade here in the US by a great company with great customer service and is most likely "better quality" than most of the other exhausts you're looking at.

just ordered my 2012 last week and havent even got it yet
How about drive it for a little bit first??? Not only that, believe me when I tell you that you'll want to do more to the car after the exhaust. Change is a slipperly slope my friend. I was determined to leave mine all factory when I got my 2010 in oct 09...... its now had all its driveline mounts changed, short shifter/bushings, swaybars, endlinks, stageII tuned, sti front springs, second set of wheels, debadged... etc. Improvements are like pringles... seriously I'm not kidding.

Its a NEW car.. dont cheap out. The cobb cbe fits absolutely PERFECT and sounds great (though that is completely subjective, I like em a little on the quiet side INSIDE the car). Nameless is also top notch quality and sounds great. Turboxs is going to be a bit loud/raspy (gets unholy loud after changing the downpipe) and mine didn't fit correctly without some massaging. Not quite N1 race loud.. but loud enough to get cop attention. If that's what you want its up to you.. but if you spend long hours in the car and dont like getting pulled over for nothing, it'll get old fast. The q300 is a decent exhaust sound wise. I cannot comment on fitment since I haven't installed one (the first three I mentioned I've first hand experience with installs) I have heard a few q300's outside the car and they sound good.. however I've not been inside for a drive with one so cant comment on that either.

Personally, I'd get the car and drive it a few weeks and really decide where I wanted to spend my money. I recommend everyone do this. No one likes wasting hard earned cash. First thing I got for mine was a set of shifter bushings, then a short throw shifter, then sway bars. It comes down to one question. Do you want actual performance? Or do you just want to show off?

Stock exhaust is so quiet =) and i like the sound of the cobb.. thinking of gettin one as well but want to wait a bit first. Exhaust isn't one of those mods you need to get right away since it doesn't do anything to your car but make it louder. I have my car for 3 months, even tho my car is quiet i went for an ap (Short shifter soon) instead of blowing 500+ on exhaust. just my two cent
