being that you have a 2011 half of these exhausts that people are recommending for your car do not exist.

if you want a subtle exhaust at idle but loud enough when you get on it there is only one exhaust to look at: Milltek

Actually wait do you have a hatch? if so you better research like crazy because there are a lot of exhausts that will have a drone

I agree with you completely. That's something I need Bc I hate when people blow out my hear drums pulling out of a spot. I'd rather sound low and go up as I accelerate. I definitely need to go to some meets. If there were any... LOL

Pretty much, your options are:

Cobb, Invidia, Megan, Tsudo, TurboXS, CNT, SPT, Nameless, Greddy, Perrin, OBX,and Magnaflow.

I'm sure I left out a few, but these are the ones that come to mind. IMO, the popular/common exhaust are the q300 (which I previously had), spt, and nameless. BTW, that's for hatchback.

This is such an opened ended answer...

Everyone has their certain taste in how an exhaust sounds; Throaty, deep, mellow, quiet, loud, etc. So its hard to say what the so called "best" is.

IMO the best thing to do is go to meets and find who has what exhaust and hear it for yourself in person.

on my 02 bugeye wagon..helix catted dp & BPM GT exhaust....beastly deep and throaty tune...had nothing but compliments (except from the wife) and not just Subaru owners...

here's what mind sounds exactly like:


on long highway drives from Bay Area to SoCAL can get pretty loud (not droning) ..ears will be buzzing after 5 hrs in the car thus I have a silencer I install before the trek....like night and day.

I'm thinking most of you have never heard Scoobysport (Hayward & Scott version) or Stromung GD exhausts before.
