On a more important note you have a 350 AWD model which is brand new. Unfortunately chances are like my 250 awd, all midpipes currently out are for RWD models only so you'll have to get an axle back =[

Default Midpipe???

Did you ever find a midpipe for your IS350 AWD???? IS350 gets no love on the forums, can't find any compatible midpipes :-/

Why do you want a midpipe + stock exhaust combo?

Based on a few youtube vids, you wont get much sound out of the midpipe with the stock exhaust.

I don't care about the sound really. I'm just trying to remove the 2 CATs on the midpipes. I was told by one dealership that the IS350 RWD and the IS350 AWD have the same midpipe but I'm still not convinced.

If you dont care about sound, then why do it at all? You wont get more power...

And since there are only midpipes available for RWD models (I think), I would assume they are different
