You would need a longer pipe inserted though to make it work. The wheelbase is the same, but the sedan is 6.9" longer, therefore it would require extension in order to exit the proper location on the car.

I guess with a hatchback it would sound a little better on the inside, which is kind of what I was hoping for.
It took about a month of driving or so before mine started to get louder.

Yeah I had that in mind when thinking about the hatchback version.

I'm hoping mine will do the same. I hope it gets louder inside.

Look at getting an intake too, if you don't already have one. I have a Steeda intake and it's really made the car sound good. It's still pretty quite at cruising speed, but you can really hear it when you put your foot down.

Swapping out the intake affected the exhaust note? Or are you just saying you like the additional sound from the intake? I have been toying with the idea of the FSWerks intake.

I just called one dealer here that sells Magnaflow cat-back and the price he said is $250.00, I'm surprised that is super cheap. I have to call them to clarify again. >.<

If you can get the 15072 for $250, buy every one that you can get your hands on!

Was it a local dealer in your area? That sounds too good to be true ... keep us posted!

Yea, I searched first on the magnaflow website then searched for a dealer near my place and asked them if they got stock of magnaflow cat-back that I can buy from them, then he said that price. I will call the dealer again and clarify.
