Firstly, hats off the MRT. They were utterly swamped when I ordered this due to a sale going on and it left the warehouse when they said it would. Box showed up with the shiny bits well-protected and my goodness the exhaust sounds marvelous. I would happily buy from MRT again. The quality-to-price ratio is off the charts. Also, your neighbors won't hate you with this exhaust. I'm really impressed by how it really isn't much louder at idle. Nicely done.
Second, I wanted to share two important details for other potential buyers. First of all, you absolutely will not be able to install this with hand tools. The clamp bolts in particular need to be absurdly tight and I was only able to get 'em tight enough with an impact wrench.
The other thing is, if you're hesitating on buying this because you don't have access to a lift or are leery around jack stands, it is actually completely possible to install this with the car on the ground. It's not fun, but it's absolutely possible.

Exhaust is accurate to the description, it is not loud, it doesn’t drone at all, and sounds really good. Down low RPMs you can really hear a rumble boxer tone. In fact it sounds so good now I want more ! I give this exhaust a 9/10 if you want something chill and quiet for daily driving. The reason it’s not a 10 is I wish it was slightly louder because the new BRZs are too quiet. Fingers crossed to a resonated MRT midpipe for the new gen BRZ!
