I just purchased a 2004 V70R. It is a great car, but it really needs an exhaust system upgrade as it just does not have the sound I would like. Additionally, I have to believe that the original exhaust system is quite restrictive.

I checked out IPD first. The IPD system looks nice, but my budget will not allow me to purchase that set up.

The following system looks like it is high quality (from what I can see on their website) and the price is right:

OBX Catback Race Exhaust

I'd appreciate any feedback on this before I order it. I'd especially be curious if anyone else has purchased it and what it sounds like. I am looking for a system that is good quality, will improve performance, and will sound good at normal driving speeds. If it is a bit loud at full throttle, that is ok but I do not something that sounds like a "fart pipe" like I see on all the Civics in my area.

Thanks in advance for your input.

OBX exhaust will not fit right, the length will be fine for you since you're a V70R (I had to cut 2 inches off since I have an S60R), but it was also a good inch or two too wide, the exhaust clamps also don't really do anything, so I had a competent shop install it, they welded up all the points where the clamps should go and did the necessary cutting/welding to get it to fit properly.

On the flip side I only spent $100 getting it installed and it was $420 to my door, so $520 total and I love how it sounds.
