Default WRX on TV commercial

Remember the one where blue sedan flings from around the corner, turns into rally car for a sec, then goes back again?
It sports a factory body kit and 17 in. BBS rims. Seems like it has been lowered a bit too. But what about that exhaust sound? It sure does not sound stock. Any ideas what that sound may belong to? That stuff sounds pretty good.

Speaking of which, just saw the new WRX commercial with the college-aged looking kids driving. And there was that same sound. Weird.












But seriously, is that the STi muffler sound?

The car in the commercial has the 17 in BBS wheels and the STi muffler, but they probably recorded something else like a rally car to get the sound.

You mean these ads:

001 is the blue/swapping one, that is definitely the STi muffler, 004 is the one with college aged kid driving, aka Radar Love.

you might need the DivX 4.12 codec:

remember that driving in a car will muffle the exhaust as opposed to being outside of the car.. sound deadening and such

same theory with motorcylces, you never know how loud your pipes are until it goes by you driven by someone else

speed safely
