Well, after reading through Sways entire journal again, I stuck with some serious choices to make.

I emailed nameless to see if I can get a CBE with quad tips rather than dual, I figure if I'm gunna shell out the coin might as well make it look good too. So depending on what they say next purchase will either be the exhaust, or the STi front lip. I know shipping is outrageous but it's just too damn sexy to say no!

Also got my rola vortex roof basket delivered today. And should be picking up my XT Wednesday or Thursday. Dealer wants me to go thursday so they have plenty of time for fogs, tint, clear bra, and remote statrt but I asked him to try and get it all done tomorrow cause I don't want to wait another day!

Hey man it's not my fault they take so long to get it to me! haha It's a very serious problem though

It's a whole new world with a car that has seemingly limitless aftermarket mods available whereas the XV market things slowly trickled out over a long period of time.

Right on man!

Good luck dealing with Nameless. They shut me down when I asked them this back in December/January. Now that the 15 WRX is out, their focus is on that model. They will tell you to purchase their dual 14FXT pipes. Our only option is to get the full catback for the 15 WRX/STI which just released to order. I've heard it's identical to ours but no one has really confirmed. If it is, I will be ordering it.

I say go for the STi lip first! But let me know what Nameless tells you. You should ask about what they think of fitting the 15 WRX on ours.

Stay in S# my friends

Check out the stock STi exhaust. Gives you that quad tip look and the nice rumble for a lot cheaper. Granted I got it from my brother's coworker but got it off a '13 STi for $175. Prices online for used don't seem to be too much worse.

2014 2.0XT, finally entered the world of turbos

I really hope nameless is willing to work on something with me cause I'd like to have the performance aspect as well but those are huge price differences so I'll definitely check it out. It has to come from a sedan correct? And are you guys talking full cbe exhaust or just mufflers? Thanks for all the info!

Yup from sedan and full CBE.

Nameless will tell you to buy their quad pipes for the 15 WRX. lol I was really hoping they would work something out for me but they pretty much shut me down.

I had the same thing happen. They completely avoided me asking about the 15 WRX exhaust because "they have any exhaust specific exhaust for the 14+ forester xt, with perfect sized tips for the bumper"

Oh well, I found another solution hah

So I picked up my 15 XT Premium yesterday. Not exactly a smooth morning, my sales person got in a wreck on the way there so he was late, then when I got there they had just started tinting my window. Two hours later they were done with tint and prep so I was clear to leave. Tried to haul a$$ out of denver because there was a severe thunderstorm morning though the area with hail.

The drive home was about 270 miles, and for almost 200 of it there was a tornado watch with hail and flash flooding likely. Not exactly what you want to drive to drive your new car through haha. Luckily I missed all the hail and most of the rain, I dodged a tornado by about 20 minutes. Sketchy stuff!

After the drive here's what I love so far: BOOST, I've never owned a turbo vehicle before so this is rad. Visiblity is awesome, interior is real nice for being the cheaper model, 2015 premium comes with heated seats AND the nice leather shifter bezel! So stoked. Overall very pleased with it.

Today I took it down to get new wheels, it looks wayyyyy better. While at the shop a guy pulled up in a 13 wrx with an invidia exhaust, I asked if he had his stock and he said 'no but I've got an SPT one if you want to buy it' EPIC WIN

So I'll pick it up from him next week, 3000 miles on it for $400 sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

Tomorrow I'm hoping to debadge, mudflaps, wrap grill and fog light housing flat black, maybe paint brake calipers, and roof basket

Damn. It's almost like it wasn't meant to be ha. Glad you made it. I just had a friend on fb post pics of his car all sorts of F'ed from the hail. I got kinda paranoid and went outside to check mines lol. Only rain here.

Haha I thought the same thing, managed to time it all perfectly though. I guess a hailstorm ripped through downtown Billings the other day and cars got destroyed. Just to be safe I changed my deductible to $100 for cosmetic repairs. Fingers crossed nothing happens!
