By a lot of accounts the Q300 has horrible drone in the hatchback.

Check out the car part review forum.

^^^This. I had one on my hatch and it was headache inducing... But, everyone has different taste. I recommend finding someone local with one and going for a ride.

Fill out your profile too.

I have the invidia DP and q300 cbe on my '12 WRX sedan and I love them. IMO the q300 sounds like garbage and drones like no tomorrow on the hatch models though...

all downpipes are pretty much the same. only difference is the mouth and if its catted or not. i have had a turboXS, helix, and now an invidia. all 3 were no different. all 3 fit fine. i did switch catbacks on my invidia and catback doesnt fit 100% , but i think its due more to being rear ended and its not 100% fixed where it should be.

i say go with the cheapest you can find. sound wise isnt gonna change unless its catted or not, sound depends on the muffler you choose.
