Ah. Well it was worth asking. Better start saving xD. Still, is it possible to swap the exaust from the st into an SE if I did a catback or axleback swap (assuming all appropriate modifications are done to the bumper to allow for the center exit)?

Anything is possible with deep enough pockets. A better idea is to just buy a RS or ST.

2012 to 2015 St brakes are bolt on upgrade and work fine ST/SE braking/bias system is exactly the same..rear brakes are same for St/SE but there is something called frankenbrake upgrade for the rear, google it.

2013 is bigger, but 2015+ went larger rotor again...I have the full 2015 upgrade kit for sale (except rotors and pads) if you are interested you can PM me, calipers, brackets, larger dust shields, pad retainers, hardware, stainless braided brake lines.

The man can't operate a clutch pedal. Second or third sentence in the op. He needs to keep it automatic. Jeez.
