Got my exhaust today!
Well, I ordered it last week, and it just showed up on my doorstep today. I was as giddy as a schoolgirl when I opened the box!

I ended up getting an Invidia Stainless cat-back exhaust. OMG it's soooo cool! Best of all, it only cost me $399 total (shipping included) from Splitting Imagez

Took about six buisness days to arrive, but it's worth the wait. they're based out of Irwindale, CA. I ordered it by phone (They have an e-mail form, but I wasn't comfortable e-mailing my credit card info) Still, Just mention that their website says Free Shipping on all Invidia Exhausts and the shipping is free (Saves you about $45)

My initial review: The quality of this exhaust is impressive, robot TIG welded, very clean. Packed with foam panels, plastic & bubble wrap to avoid damage. The kit includes the one-piece catback system, a stainless exhaust hanger bracket (probably needs to be bolted under the heatshield, like many aftermarket exhausts) A two-level tuneable Silencer (Also stainless, but unpolished) and a pair of Invidia decals.

Lacking from the package is an install guide, but the install should be pretty straightforward to most gearheads.

The box it came in is the original, straight from Japan. Exhaust is 100% JDM and feels much lighter than the stock piece. Also, it has solid hangers, not hollow ones. The piping is mandrel bent, and reminds me of similar cat-backs (Skunk2, RS-R Exmag) All in all, based on a hands-on inspection, The quality of this exhaust is high, and I fully expect it to deliver some good mid to top end gains, and maybe some decent low end gains after installing the silencer. As soon as spring hits, I intend to bolt this baby up and give a full review on it.

Until then it will wait patiently in it's box for springtime to come. If at all possible, I will take a couple Pics of the exhaust tommrrow and post them in this thread for your viewing pleasure.
