That looks great. I’m also getting my new GReedy exhaust installed on Tuesday. How is the sound for you?
Thanks! At idle, there is a low rumble sound compared to the stock sport exhaust. The low grunt gets louder as you climb to the higher RPM's which is a blast for me right now (this combined with the turbo spooling sound). One point I like to mention is that during freeway travel speeds, it will have a bit of a drone sound. Not complaining, but just wanted you to know it's there.

Added one last carbon fiber accent to my exterior. Door handle overlays.

There isn’t a whole lot of write up on a rear bar install. (Hatchback, including type r).


I’ve had this for over 7 months now probably but have not gotten around to installing it.


It’s pretty straight forward.


Lower rear seats. This gives you access to the c-pillar panels. NO removal of panel is needed but you do need to at least have it pulled back. (Unclipped)


Once you pulled back the panel, you pull back the carpeting and you can see the hook that is there to lock in the rear seat when positioned up normally.


Take out those 2 bolts on each side and remove the hook also. 12mm

Put bar in place and then put the hook over the bar and re-install the nut.

Trim carpeting. (Around the bar, for a clean look)

Other options are j’s racing and Beatrush. Not necessarily cheap options...

Thanks for the nice write up but you may want to consider a little spring cleaning. Holy crap! :eek:

Put in the new accessory, rear seat back protector
Way easier than the rear STB lol (but I'm really interested to do it someday)

Looks good. :thumbsup: I didn't even know they had such a thing. Great protection if you haul a lot of larger stuff.

Yup, it's available this year, though I don't have much to haul around, but I think the day will eventually come, and it's good to be prepared:D

There was one time I was giving someone a ride, and he surprised me with a pair of ski:confused1:

Just got the Greddy Supreme exhaust thanks to the team at Evasive. I must say it's a nice upgrade from the silent stock exhaust and love the look of the exhaust tips. However, this exhaust is giving some major droning at between2k-3k RPM and it goes away above 3k. Some users said it will go away within weeks so we will see. Cruising sound is very smooth but the droning can be too much although this topic can be subjective. I'm also feeling minor lower end torque loss although it could be placebo.....
