Default Newbie question about stock exhaust images

Hello amazing Subaru family

I really need your expert help please.

Iím looking to buy a 2019 sti base and the previous owner added some cosmetic additions like side skirts and carbon fiber elements.

But one thing is Iím not sure if the exhaust is stock or aftermarket?

The car is priced higher, but Iím not sure if itís worth the extra money if the exhaust is stock.

There is no stamped brands, but there are blue tips.

I'm not sure how to add images, but does anyone have images of what a stock 2019 sti looks like?

Thank you so much experts!

Chris

1. Even if the exhaust was hand made by Carroll Shelby himself and contained the ashes of Fred Rogers, it would add $0.00 to the sale price. Knowledge of the exhaust maker adds no value to you.
2. If you are buying a car, you need to take it to any mechanic at any shop to include nationwide chains like Pep Boys for a pre purchase inspection. Ask for a compression test along with it. It will cost you ~$150. They will walk you around the car and let you know of the now/later things to do and an overall idea of condition and if they are super smart, will know the value but likely not.

Why don't you ask the current owner? I will tell you that the stock exhaust will have a low rumble, unlike the exhaust of a WRX or Crosstrek. My son has a 20 STi and I know when he's come home from work because I can hear his stock exhaust from the back of the house when the car is still 300 feet away.

For pictures, make an account on img.nasioc.com. Go to the private vehicles for sale and directions are in the second sticky.
