Looks great! Which Apexi did you get? (model number)

Have you looked into any Cold Air Intakes? Do they even make them or are they worth it for a Crosstrek? I read that the way Subaru handles intake may mean you don't even need one.

G'day buddy
Model number for filter is in the pic top right
And yep I did look into it but in Australia pod filters are illegal which sux
The standard box works very well with Apexi in it anyhow

Hi Scoobyxv-l I've seen you on other forums as well with your XV. Is that exhaust that you want to get a universal or is it made for the XV?

Nice ride, by the way.

Hey there, I see you got rid of a Honda CRX, your going to have to get used to the XV. Not too many performance parts available for this vehicle. I had the same issues when I sold my civic. It's more make it look unique and utilize it for utility purposes, than to make it go faster. Once you get used to that logic, it all comes natural.

Good luck.

I thought about the BRZ too, but then you wouldn't have AWD and it's not as roomy as the XV. Now if they made an XV with the 2.5 engine or a turbo version that didn't take premium gas. That would be something to customize.

Loves these new exhausts

So much more fun to drive and heaps better mileage
On a fav Sunday drive we used to get 8.0. 1/100km
But today we got 6.6( auto mode ) and 6.8( manual mode )
So in either mode our two xv's are more fun to drive and much greener lol
Win win ( 1st gear now in manual mode can reach 80 km now)
Very happy
