Default How Loud is Borla Hush exhaust?

I'm looking at a cat back to use with my car and have decided, purely price wise, to go with the borla. I was just wondering if the hush is too quiet. I want to be able to hear it a little louder than stock at idle. and I want to be able to hear is inside the car with the windows open when I'm getting on it, but I want to not here much when I'm cruising on the interstate. Is this at all possible and if so, which system should I choose.

There really is no such thing as a quiet exhaust when you mash the gas. Above 4k RPM, you will hear every one. Below are the "quiet" ones:

a. M2 Performance 94db @ idle, 94 @ 3000 RPM
b. GReddy Evolution 94db @ idle, 92 @ 3000 RPM
c. MRT Twin Tip: No data, but commonly known as quiet.
d. Prodrive: 94dB @ idle
e. STi Muffler: No data, but commonly known as quiet.
f. Borla Hush: New exhaust with few reviews, but all of them seem to point to quiet.
