Default Anyone around here have the Apexi N1 or 5zigen cat-back on?

I am trying to decide between either of those exhausts and I would really love to hear it in person.

I like the way both of those system's look, but I heard the Apexi is really loud. I want it to be fairly loud outside (well, not too loud, but I do want to hear the engine roar ), but I don't really want any interior droning...

Anyone want to audition their exhaust for me? Anyone have any insights on either exhaust system?

Thanks!

I have the N1 and it isnt that loud inside my car. Ive had it for over 2 years and Ive never used the silencer that came with it. I see no need for it.

Do you think there would be much a difference between your GC8 and the WRX though? I am also going to be running a catless downpipe with it (though I hear that doesn't make much difference in the sound level)...

Anyone else have any comments?

If anything your WRX should be quieter because it has that snail shaped thingy to quiet it down.

I dunno, I've heard that it is pretty loud. Like, it drones on the interior. I don't want that.

I think I am gonna go for the 5zigen....

I used to have the N1...it's not loud at all. If anything, then 5zigen is louder (and ricier sounding)

I keep hearing so many contradictory statements!

On subarureview.com a bunch of 2.5 guys said it was really loud and droned and some WRX guys said that same. One WRX guy said his 5zigen was quieter than the N1...

I don't know what to do...

Can anyone post their impression of the exhaust on a WRX?? That's what is really important to me. I need to know if the N1 drones at all in the interior...

Better yet, anyone have on on their car who is in the area?

Thanks again!
