I'm going to say this now, politely, before several people jump in and flame you...

Exhausts are completely subjective. What we like, might sound too loud/terrible to you. With that being said, there is also an entire thread in this subforum dedicated to the 2011+ exhaust. I suggest you start there.

Also want to make sure you understand that catbacks are really only for sound and look, it won't add any power.

Good lord people, he didn't ask what exhaust sounds good or the best or gives him the most hp gain, he simply asked if anyone reccomends any exhaust system. Wether it be quality, fitment, customer service, whatever..

I dont know personal for your 13' sti, but ive been very happy with Invidia's products. The quality and fitment is superb, and the sound/tone is smooth, deep and beautiful.

Than he can find his way to the thread that has every exhaust under the sun in it along with opinions. Not ask the same question you see every day in the wrong section.

Welcome to the forums. Please use NASIOC SEARCH before making new threads. We know you just want a simple answer but this question has been asked a million times. It always gets the same answer, cat back exhaust is an opinion.

You have to put the effort in yourself. Exhausts aren't cheap and you will be throwing away money if you just go off of what people say. What is great for a single 22 year old is not great for a mid 30's with a wife and kid.

The thread everyone is telling you to find is a damn good compilation of 2011+ WRX/STI exhausts. These will be the same for your 2013.

This site is best used as an encyclopedia. No matter what question you have, search first. 95% of the time it has already been asked. Easiest way to search is go to google, type "nasioc" followed by what you want.

Example of how to search what you want.

As for my opinion, I run the Cobb CBE and love it.

Do you have a hatch or sedan? The Invidia sounds drastically different on both. If you have a hatch, you may want to look at something else. It's gonna drone so bad it will rattle your brain out of your ears.

Read up on that exhaust compilation thread. It has everything you want/need to know. There are also video and sound clips.
