Thanks, I've got my stock ST muffler in the garage and if it sounds good I might throw it on my wife's SE.

Thanks, when I first saw it at the dealer I actually didnt like it then the more I saw it the more I liked it, and yea I did, figured I care about my car than anyone else so I'd make sure its done right took me awhile but I had some experience with my previous vehicle so I felt fairly confident

I like the ST muffler. Think it was a worth while mod? I am not crazy about 4 cyl exhaust notes with aftermarket systems... I was thinking about the same mod but running the stock ST piping size... which is 2.25 over the regular 2" if i recall.

I don't know if I am crazy about how the tip just hangs below the bumper though. I'd either want to swap bumpers (I think I saw just a lower bumper valance available for this swap) or some how trim that black part up where the tip comes out...

It's really personal preference I enjoy the mod so far it definitely does not make too much noise (I am a v8 exhaust kinda guy) and the noise it does make is clean and crisp sounding. You are correct in the sizing of the piping. I will eventually ghave a custom catback setup built and most likely keep the ST muffler.

I wasn't a huge fan either but after looking into the lower valaance swap prices I decided to just jeep it stock it looks much nicer in person. I believe all said and done with paint matching the two grilles in the lower valance and the valance itslef would be around 500 bones a little too steep for me being a college kid along with the monthly bill hahah

Post some pics on the thread here whenever!
ya I got a LED kit from Gluxlite, it wasn't too bad on price. My headlights and foglights are HOEN USA bright white lights, If I could go back I would just buy 6000 HIDs. But same here on the college kid, I am a freshman in college lol. The vinyl wrapping really isnt hard. There is a good thread on here about how to remove everything. When you are wrapping, make sure to be patient with it. Here is a pic of the tint!
