So I've been looking around quite a bit and doing a lot of research for a new STi exhaust. So my previous car was a 91 240sx Silvia with the stock KA in and it had 3" blast pipes on it and the drone was insane.
I wanted an exhaust for my STi that would be more... "gentleman-like" if that makes sense. I wanted an exhaust that will be loud enough when I want it to but also doesn't have too much drone.
So it seems like my best fit for what I've seen thus far would be the Nvidia Q300. It sounds pretty nice and isn't too loud but I have no idea what the drone is like.
What other exhausts should I be looking at? Thank you for any suggestions!

I have a Corsa on my 2011 WRX. When I stand on it it will rattle the interior, when I'm cruising you can't hardly hear it.

That actually sounds like it would be a bit too quiet for my taste... Haha thanks for the suggestion though!

The q300 drones like heck on the gr wagon like what I drive. It's also more aggressive than the q300. In comparing both the Corsa sounds much louder. So if Corsa is too tame the q300 is going to be way more tame.

Yeah just be warned for some reason although the Q300 is silent on the FA for whatever reason it drones bad on the EJ motors.

Like previously recommended I think your best choice is the Corsa. Can't go wrong.

Everything but Corsa is going to drone. I have the ETS "Quiet" with the mid-pipe resonator. It sounds great, but it still drones some, it's just the nature of the beast.

Corsa is a great exhaust. But, I have always been a fan of invidia. I have the invidia Q300 on my STi sedan and have yet to experience droning. But I also had the Q300 on my wrx hatchback before and did get some drone on highway drives.

Just wait til it's got about 10K on it. The Q300 on my WRX Sedan droned so bad it would run you out of the car at 70mph.

Thats my thing. People hear drone and think it's exhaust sound. Drone is like a pressure wave that goes wubwubwubwubwubwub. The muff and resanator deletes drone so bad it'll pulsate your sphincter. People mistake that for having an actual tone, don't be that people.
