Default Anyone local with an exhaust on their 08+ STI?

Howdy ladies and gents...

Im looking into what exhaust/dp combo to get for my STI and nothing is better than hearing them in person. Ive watch as many youtube videos as I can handle... but they just dont quite cut it.

Im looking for something that is going to increase performance, but that isnt obnoxiously loud. I am well aware that more power = more noise. Im also aware that the tune will greatly effect the power outputs, as well. Thus, I am willing to sacrifice a bit on the power output to get an exhaust that is a slight bit louder than stock without being crazy loud.

So, Im hoping to find some local people that have a turboback exhaust on their 08+ STI to let me hear.

Thanks,
Phalanx

Right now Im leaning towards the Invidia Catted DP & Q300 catback system

Am I the only one who thinks that the GD sounds far better with an exhaust than the GR?

I've heard the Invida Q300 before, it sounded pretty good for a GR.

I highly recommend the MXP, but it's not cheap. Sounds like sex IMO w/out being obnoxious. It's the only dual muffler exhaust for the 08 that I know of (when I bought it earlier this year anyway...) I have a stock DP now, but plan on getting a catted DP in the spring.

out of all the exhaust, invidia and blitz sound the best IMO. if you want quited at idle and noise under throttle i say go invidia, maddad, or bosal.
