Exclamation Help! This Decision Is Killing Me!!!

Hey...Ive researched for MONTHS on end and cannot make up my mind! I'm making my decision on turbobacks and came down to these two:

Invidia G200 TBE
BPM Twister MKIII

Invidia definitly wins by looks but it seems like the MKIII wins by sound.

Can you help me decide? Can you describe how they sound and quality? Most importantly I really want the low, classic boxer sound...

The Invidias catback is brand new but the downpipe is used for a couple thousand miles. Both the BPM Twister's catback and downpipe are used for about 6K miles. Both will cost me around $850...

Help me out and convince me please! Thanks!

PS - Please don't recommend me any other exhausts. Ive researched a while and came down to these two...Thanks!

Go BPM, They are the shiznits. Too many people have the individia. Go for SOUND!! ITs what they can hear a mile away!

Invidia quality is top notch...BPM I haven't heard anything recently (like they fell off the face of the earth) but what I did hear in the past was the quality was poor but gave a decent sound

I would go with the Invidia

Btw, with a title like that you are asking for trouble...are you like 16?

Does anyone currently have these exhausts on their car?

Does anyone know the size of the MKIII's exhaust tip? Thanks!

Oh hell yeah! When I chose my turbo back I wanted to make sure that whenever my car was up on a lift or catching air that people could see how pimp my exhaust looks.

We all know that the owners of fast cars only consider how an exhaust looks and sounds because thats most important aspect of an exhaust, forget about how the dang thing flows thats for ricers.

This will most likely be the most imporant choice you will ever make in your life!

Is the MKIII obnoxiously loud though, like you wont even be able to hear your turbo spool and people will turn to stare at you?

I test drove a WRX with a BPM exhaust - dont know all that it had such as uppipe/downpipe. But I expect it had all cause it was pretty loud - but very obnoxious. It sounded like a helicopter, I hated it. And it had wicked back-firing problems. Only one I've had experience with but it was aweful. Go with the former.
