After adjusting the tips flush with the bumper cutouts today at work I walked around the rear of the car from all angles. Surprisingly, seeing the edge of the exhaust tip next to the top curve of the bumper cutout (they were inset a good 3qtr inch after the install last night) now makes it look like more of a deliberate design element than an effort to call attention to the huge tips. Never thought I'd begin to think 4.5" tips could look "right"

It's kind of how R35 GTR tips are massive, but they "look right" on the car

Anyone want blued tips for their new catback? I have a set on my MXP SP and would love to trade straight for the stainless ones.

Well, it took 3 days, but I'm a convert. 4.5" exhaust tips are fine with me.

It's a pretty subtle but nice change out of the box from the stock piece, Johan. The thrashy/raspy sound at WOT is pretty much non-existent, so in that aspect it's actually quieter than stock. There's a deeper tone present at start up and idle now that wasn't there before- it's deeper all the time but it's a low volume tone under acceleration, if that makes sense. It's like nearly all the higher frequencies of the exhaust sound have been replaced with a lower volume, deeper tone. Track day next Tuesday, that should be a proper break-in for it- interested to hear if there will be any difference afterwards.

There will be, exhausts always break in and sound different after a few strong heat cycles.

Meh, we all know you're going to offload the BRZ soon anyway, your Type-R is a way better road car.

Well I just installed this exhaust and it's currently paired with a catless header, an overpipe, ultra quiet front pipe (catted and resonated) and I'd like to share that it is quieter than a Greddy SP Elite axleback. I'd be lying if I said I was a little sceptical that a 70mm catback was quieter than one of the quietest axlebacks, but it actually is. In fact, it's so quiet, I can't really hear it over the road and tire noise in the top half of second gear! Good job CSG!

Install was a breeze, my only suggestion is to take all the rubber exhaust hangers off and switch them over to the new exhaust and not try to leave the hangers on the car and switch the exhaust.

Exhaust definitely opened up a bit after a bit, but is by no means loud. Here's a video to help give a better idea.
