I can attest to it, the WRX exhaust sounds wonderful. Great buy for anyone needing it.

Did you run this setup for a while? I was curious if the tips touching the bumper caused any buzzing and/or melting?

@Heaton, no the tips do not get hot enough to melt the bumper. I used the stainless steel scrubber method to negate the droning. If it were a manual transmission, it wouldn't be an issue. (Shakes fist at Subaru bean counters)

I've run this or a similar setup over the past few years. With the first set going on in 2016.

I'm not familiar--what is the stainless steel scrubber method? Is it padding between the muffler tips and bumper cover?

does the midpipe help that kinda tinny rattling from the exhaust? I think it is coming from the heatsheild toward the engine end but curious what else the midpipe did for you. I have the same rear tips on my FXT

The wrx/sti midpipe is less restrictive. Fairly straight through versus being forced through the pancake resonator.

"Tinny" rattle is probably a heat shield.

Aesthetic - Some people enjoy how the WRX mufflers look on the Forester.

Midpipe - Enhances exhaust flow with a smaller resonator with minuscule volume increase if using stock mufflers. The OEM pancake resonator is a tad restrictive.

Mufflers - Pure Noise. Unless you do the Scotch Brite mod to wrangle the noise...
