Yep.. Already aware.. Read that article last week.

I'm not concerned though. My idle has been fine since I bought the car and it appears most of those cars have problems before 1000 miles.

Weird how the two manufacturers are recommending two different things though to remedy the problem. O_o

No idle issues for me. But I had 100 miles on it the first day so it never sat around to idle during that time haha.

He said "no issues at all."

I haven't been able to hear the chirp since the other night when all of us were hanging out, chirping it up.

I heard Furtive's exhaust in the shop today. Pleasantly suprised. It sounded good. The Invidia sounds great, too. And at a reasonable price.

I'm not going to eliminate the muffler but its nice to see the tips fit through the lower bumper spoiler.

I like their plates though

So on rallysport's website, the BRZ catback invidia N1 is selling for $582 plus $170 in shipping to alaska. Not a bad deal at all.

Oh noes! Lop-sided exhaust fumes!

I'm sure I could get retraC Engineering to modify the piping to be more evenly dispersed.

I wanted Nameless, but I was hoping they'd go for a full muffler delete for weight-savings. They decided against it because they said without the muffler at all it sounded annoying. It's already 9lbs lighter than stock, so I guess that's cool, but I'm sure the Mach V is even lighter, which is why I was excited about it, plus the sound.

The tips between Nameless and Mach V look the same, so I maybe end up getting Nameless since I'm not crazy about the angling of the Invidia. Although I could see if rE would be able to readjust the angle? Hmmm...

Neat picture, Davin.
