I like the sound but I'm worried about comfort of noise levels in the cabin by adding the DP. Video might not do it justice, what's your opinion on how tolerable it is for daily driver.

I used to have a WRX with full 3 inch turbo-back. Looking back I would not, at my age now, drive something every day that loud. I enjoy listening to the radio these days more than the drone of my exhaust unless I feel the need to crack into it. I may just start with the cat-back and see from there.

Ha, That's funny. I'm coming from the a similar thing. I had a WRX with catless DP and HKS carbon Ti. I also had a EWG which was super loud. I miss it when I want to get on it but don't miss the highway drone.

Yeah, I mean I'm only 20 and I don't feel like hearing my car moaning for the entirety of my commute. Or wherever I decide to go lol. As is, the q300 alone is perfect. Its audible while driving at 70mph in 6th, but its not too loud. I can easily have a conversation with someone inside the car without raising my voice. And the radio volume isn't at all overtaken, or even affected at all really, by the exhaust note.

I feel like i'm not a good judge of how loud or quiet exhausts are because i have motor mounts. They DRASTICALLY change the engine and exhaust notes inside the car.

I'm sponsored by Invidia, and all I can say is that I love the Q300 exhaust, it's quiet and you can definitely feel the power gain; I have a couple of videos in youtube: Search 2012 Honda Civic Si InvidiaQ300 full cat back.

I posted pics and review at the other 9th c i v i c site :)

I don't know man. It sounds pretty crappy in the videos. You might want to think about getting something different. PM if you end up selling it. :Banane08:

Ha, just playing. Like the vanity plate and you just made my mind up. Appreciate it.

They do? I wouldn't have thought that would actually change the tone of the exhaust...all they do is keep the engine more secure. How does that affect how audible it is?

Yeah I had catless up-pipe, catless invidia bellmouth dp and the carbon-ti also, all I can say is it was redonkulous, my neighbors hated it.

Anyway, I really do like the sound of the Q300 and even though I was planning on not modding the car I may just have go ahead and grab it. Not having a car to work on is quite the drag.
