How do you like your q300? is it loud enough? I want loud too, but the q300 just looks so damn good

Just get the invidia dual n1. Its loud but but not stupid loud. The q300 is the best looking exhaust hands down.. But i aint looking at it as much as i am hearing it. So i am happy with the dual n1's. They look better than the single, sounds about the same loudness

I think I'm going to get n1 dual, the q300 is just too quiet. Is it too loud though?

Just want to add I love my nameless deletes.... I put the quad tip ones on my 08 wrx and the not only sounded great but looked sick... I had to shave a little off the bumper but was well worth it. Plus got them for $175 on craigslist

Just placed an order w/ Boston Motorsports for the n1 dual ti tips. I've read a few testimonials about the q300 sounding similar to stock, thus, I chose the n1. If I'm going to spend money I would like to hear a noticeable difference. Also, the n1 dual is about $300 cheaper...

Once I get it installed I'll try and post a review.

I'm still using the stock exhaust, so I'm pretty pumped. I can hardly wait

Installed the N1 dual a couple of weeks ago and I'm just wondering if I installed this one pipe upside down.

I'm currently at work and while driving away I had to look back to check on my car, that's when I noticed that I could see the flex pipe part hanging lower than the rest. Just wondering of this is correct or if I installed it upside down. If so feel free to laugh, if I'm correct still feel free to laugh.

On the review part... I love this exhaust, absolutely no negatives just the slight confusion; I just now two weeks after installation.

Anybody ever compare the loudness difference between the n1 and the spt? I got the SPT and looking into something louder. Id also like to have something with that low, deep boxer rumble. Thanks!

Installed the exhaust yesterday afternoon, and I must say that the sound is amazing. I am very glad that I chose this over the q300. I will write up a more in depth review when I get home. Sounds like an entirely different car.

Just installed my invidia q300 on my wrx sedan. Just letting everyone kno that if you are looking for a pretty loud exhaust that u can hear for blocks do not get this exhaust. I did not want a really loud exhaust so the q300 was perfect for me. However it will give your car a rumble that you can definately hear. And look wise nothing will beat the q300 I love the way it looks with the blue burnt tips. I was surpised at how quiet it was but to me I think its perfect. Not raspy but u will still get some pops and crackles. Hope this helps some people make a decision.

Does the q300 get rid of the drone between 1500-1900 rpms that the stock exhaust has?

If you're talking about that really bassy drone when the car is just warming up, yes it does get rid of it.

what about the when just cruising around? The tone that resonates in the cab between 1500 and 1900 drives me nuts sometimes.

I don't think you should be cruising around in that speed. Esp in 5th gear. If you're talking about 1st 1500-1900, I'm not too sure on that. Look up 2011 wrx sedan q300 on youtube, you'll see my vids and listen if there's still drone at those rpms

The q300 is the perfect tone. Will give you all the sound that you want without getting super annoyed with drone. It will have minimal drone, but I think it's a good drone the one you like to hear to make you feel that you have a kick a$$ exhaust.

For someone who is moving on with their life (25) about to get married and **** and can't really have a loud car as I did in the past, the q300 was by far the best exhaust for me. If you get on it, it sounds raw and amazing. But cruising and idling, just commuting or whatever you may do, it is barely louder than stock. Sometimes the stock one droned more in certain rpms to be honest, there is no drone. And IMO one of the best looking exhausts as well as keeping the quad tip design. I love mine

I purchased Nameless muffler deletes a few months after purchasing my 2013 WRX sedan. These are great mufflers to start with if you don't have engine mods and want some great sound quick. I recently purchased an accessport and will be grabbing a DP and catback Q300 next spring to make use of it.

Surprisingly I have also never been pulled over with them, nice rumble and cheap costs. On more than one occasion people have told me in traffic how nice they sound.

Started with Nameless deletes and within a week changed to the 4" muffled version. Seems more subtle. The deletes were a bit loud with the downpipe.

First round with the deletes...


Second round with the 4" mufflers...

The Dual n1 is a bit louder for my taste....it sounds great just cruising around town below 50mph, love the growl...really mean sounding...but highway driving at speeds above 70 can be a bit much, especially for durations of two hours or longer. Does anyone know if I found someone who has a q300, if we could simply swap out the axleback portion? Can't really get a solid answer after searching around. My dual N1 is currently on my 14' WRX

Put the silencers in. I finally put mine in before I began a 500 mile trip. It will make your car quieter than stock. You cannot even hear the exhaust.
