Question who's got the throaty cat back?

hey guys,

just wondering if someone can help suggest an throaty cat back exhaust for the wrx.

I'm looking/researching for one that has a great Low rumble, throaty, not neccasarily loudest, but i do want to hear it

there are so many to pick from!! and it's difficult to shop online with out actually hearing/driving.
So i figure it might be wise to ask the community,

suggestions of brand and model?////


thanks in advance fellas,

I've gotten lots of favourable comments from my Borla Hush setup. It sounds absolutely great hooked up to a stock downpipe -- very deep, yet unobtrusive until you get hard on the throttle. It's got a big resonator and muffler to help with the volume.

Then I added an after-market UP and DP -- not so subtle after that. It's quieter than other setups I've heard, but it's quite loud in a wagon. Still sounds good though.

I have a Apexi WS exhaust...not to loud, just right, nice throaty sound when I am into it, and not even noticable when i don't want it to be.
It was cheapish too...only 750 after all was said and done, it is a catback on Stock everything else. I imagine it will get louder when i put the Aftermarket downpipe in.
