So im planning on getting a cbe in the next month and cant decide between them having not heard a car with them to compare (probably have just didnt notice) i know the 300 is stock looking but i have heard its not that loud, while as the 200 is a melon cannon an double the noise. Im coming from a stock 06 wrx exhaust so i know both are a large improvement but i want to have the tone but not enough a cop would be a dick. What would be a better? pros an cons

Look children, another "which exhaust should I buy basing everything on other peoples opinions and generally not doing any of my own research."

Go to the exhaust compilation thread. Where is it? A simple search will tell you it's the 100+ page thread in the exterior mod subforum.

When you say "large improvement" what are you referring to? A CBE doesn't net you any power gains, so its all about look and sound.

I got a 300 on my 09 and I love it
I decided on that after checking numerous videos on YouTube because i had not been to any of the local meets yet. Most of those videos are on here, most likely under the biggest exhaust compilation thread on here.
Or better yet. See if there's Subaru meets near you, so you can hear different ones in person.

First, the G200 is the melon shooter and the Q300 is the stock-looking one that's pretty damn quiet. Second, disregard anything anyone says about 2008+ versions of your exhaust, they're completely different and only share the name.

Search for exhaust clips on YouTube, reviews in the Car Part Reviews forum on here, and find locals at meets who have these exhausts because nothing beats hearing them in person. I will say that if you're concerned about cops, the Q300 is probably a better option for you. The design of the G200 alone isn't under the radar at all.

Cute. I would think its best to get opinions and my own research which ive done and continue to do until i buy the thing. So sorry i made you upset. I would have to think gain from it would have to happen be it by 1 or even 5, i know flow is restricted at the dp but something has to be better then nothing.

200 is a huge melon shooter but is loud and great. if you dont want to be noticed by the popo then go with the q300. i bought my greddy tic from a member that wanted to quiet his car down and went with the 300 with a catted downpipe. its not bad if i get sick of hearing mine id probably consider that one myself. merry xmas!
