Default Carsick Problem

Hi everyone,

I am pretty new to this forum as I just bought my 2011 WRX in June. The problem that I am having is that the new car makes my wife car sick. She claims it's because it is too quiet and that if we had a louder exhaust it wouldn't make her sick. She has done a cross country trip in a WRX before that had a full exhaust and didn't have an issue. This is a really bizarre occurrence to me. The other half of the issue is that since we just paid for our wedding and honeymoon I don't really have the money to put a full exhaust on the car. From what I can tell the cheapest solution is to install an axle-back exhaust. Can anyone suggest a good axle-back exhaust with a nice rumble, and preferably lets me keep the quad (or at least dual tips) in the back. I like the symmetrical exhaust look. Thanks for the help!

sounds like an awesome excuse to try for upgrades - maybe see if she has extra $$ to put towards it since she's the one that wants it louder?

Nameless Performance axle back.

http://shop.namelessperformance.com/sti-sedan-axleback/

I had it and LOVED it! Mated to a gutted Cobb downpipe, the sound was AMAZING.

See if you can get it from ElementAK (Element Automotive) locally. Good guys. Good deals.

Do you have a sedan or hatch?

You're welcome! In case you didn't see my edit, I was curious if you had a sedan or hatch? Because what I linked is for the sedan.

P3 Autowerks also offers financing for parts & labor if money upfront is an issue at the moment. Buy the exhaust setup you really want instead of settling for just an axel back. All cool guys down there
