Default 2012 xD Model changes
I bought my wife a 2012 xD and was looking into some simple mods like intake and exhaust to make it sound a bit better for her. She has a 5spd and I was wondering if anyone could tell me if there were any changes made from the 2011 model to the 2012 as I was looking into getting the Takeda Intake but its fitment says up to 2011. I'm assuming they just haven't gotten around to updating but I could be wrong. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

cant go wrong with trd axle back. as far as intakes go, might want to look around. I believe injen gives out most for our cars follow by fujita. i suggest giving the intake box for a filter cone swap like spectre from pepboys or advance auto a shot. many owners here done it and might be considered best bang for your buck mod

^^^ditton on the DIY intake. i decided to go that route to save some money. got everything i needed at autozone. cost around $60 and took about an hour or so to install. awesome bang for the buck

also, dont forget that you can get really good sound for cheap when it comes to exhaust. i almost spent like $300 for magnaflow exhaust for mine. instead, i just cut the muffler off and ran straight pipe out to a tip. our car has a built in resonator, so it sounds really deep and throaty. actually better than the muffler IMO.
