I like the sound. Wouldn't be able to tell if it's overly loud until I heard it in person.
It sounds a little on the loud side but boy does it ever sound good as it gets up to speed. Best sounding sedan exhaust I've heard so far at WOT.yep, I was set on the Ark Grip due to looks and it not being too loud, but this exhaust has now caught my attention...strongly considering it it does sound loud though, which I'm not crazy about due to the cobs being bitches about that here. hmm...
I'm sure, and I know I will love it, but I just don't want to pay over $1200 for an exhaust and then a few hundred in tickets for it every few months. lolIt sounds a little on the loud side but boy does it ever sound good as it gets up to speed. Best sounding sedan exhaust I've heard so far at WOT.
I hear you. Our police aren't that anal about the loud exhausts but I'm more worried about getting the evil eye from neighbours.I'm sure, and I know I will love it, but I just don't want to pay over $1200 for an exhaust and then a few hundred in tickets for it every few months. lol
Lucky. I might be able to get away with it since the system looks stock-ish, especially just the tips, and it is a sports car so most cops may assume it is loud off the bat. But still, it's a chance. Not too worried about neighbors for now, since I live in a condo currently and my car is in an underground parking garageI hear you.

Just saw this thread yesterday, and being an owner of the new Corsa exhaust (2013 WRX Sedan) I figured I might be able to answer some questions.
Corsa worked with some of the guys in our local Subie club to develop the exhaust, and then once it was done they held a meet for us at their facility.
The hatch in the video has a stock downpipe.
The guy with the sedan has a catless downpipe (99% sure, although the video could have been taken before he got it). It's definitely louder if you go catless.
I have a stock WRX, and my experience with the Corsa has been fantastic so far. I came from the SPT exhaust, which I liked but droned a bit too much for me when I had the back seats down (which is most of the winter). Other than that, I didn't really notice much drone, but the entire car "rumbled".
I was pretty blown away the first time I sat in the car after getting the new exhaust. It's crazy quiet inside now, and it actually sounds like the exhaust is BEHIND you, not under or all around you. As a note, I only have had experience with the SPT CBE, so I don't know how much drone/vibration is present in the stock exhaust.
As for the sound, it's a subjective thing, and I'm obviously rather biased here, but I personally think it's the best sounding exhaust I've heard for the GR's. It's not too loud at idle, and when casually driving around it doesn't seem overly loud (however it's hard to tell from inside the car how loud it really is outside). When you get on it it does get pretty loud, but I think the mean growling sound it has keeps it from being obnoxious.
I actually have a WRX sedan, and I was worried it would be too loud, but I think it's perfect.thanks a lot for the info. I'm assuming you have a hatch? can you give any mor einfo on the dsedan sound? have you heard it on a sedan with stock downpipe? I'm concerned it's too loud at idle, the cops here can be picky, but if it's a little loud I dont mind. Just don't want excessive loudness and tons of attention.
