Thank you!
We have experience with the Borla.  If you are concerned about droning, I would recommend the Borla Touring.  The Sport is loud and may have some droning.

I have the resonated Milltek on my '05 R53. It is louder than stock but doesn't drone and retains the burble/popping. As mentioned above, its hard to convey the sound of an exhaust or how they stack up. That being said, I compare to my old Magnaflow that I had on a '94 Golf - which was louder and droned quite a bit on the highway at 3k rpm.

What your asking is in the ear of the beholder, you really need to hear what’s out there, and make you own choice. Good luck
