Hello i have a stock 2017 and was wondering if anyone was running this exhaust set up (Invidia Gemini Single Layer Cat Back Exhaust w/Titanium Burnt Tips
MODEL # INV HS15STIGM4ST
Manufacturer Part # HS15STIGM4ST) just wanted to get some info/feedback on it. Anything would be helpful and if anyone recomends something else please post away! I really hate the stock exhaust and the invidia q300 i think is too quite so looking for options.

I'm also not a huge fan of the Q300 on the FA motor. (or the stock for that matter)
However, I'm not familiar with your choice. I went with the ETS 'quiet' CBE w/ resonator. It sounds great IMHO. There's no drone and it has a nice progressive volume to it the more you get on it. I found it very difficult to finally make a decision. It took me about a year.

ETS Catback sounds, looks, and is built great.

Edit: Originally thought you meant the FULL titanium $2,000 exhaust. Invidia is a quality exhaust.

So i got it (Invidia)for $989.00 i could not pass it up at that price. The gripe i had with ETS is that they are charging me for basically stainless steel pipes without a resonator for $ 1200. It seemed a little pricy for no resonator and no muffler.

That's a good deal. It's actually only $915 on SMY right now. https://www.smyperformance.com/invi...tanium-tip-cat-back-exhaust-2015-wrx-sti.html

With ETS, you're not just paying for pipes, you're paying for an exhaust made in the US with V-Band connections ,and hand executed TIG welds, vs. Taiwanese or Korean robot welds and bolt flanges on the invidia.
