Question Borla Exhaust any Good?

I've searched the old messages and found a lot of info about the Borla headers and many other exhaust systems but nothing on the Borla cat back exhaust. I would like to hear from people who are using them and how they like them. They seem a lot less expensive then the others so I was wondering about the quality and sound they produce. I wanted dual tip but I don't think Borla makes one.

Thanks.

Have a Borla cat-back on my 95L 2.2 litre. Like it alot, sounds great, fit & finish great! VERY easy install.
Don't have the headers though, so can't report on them.

How loud are they? I got a chance to hear an APEX N1 and I love its growl, but if the Borla sounds just as good, then I might go for it because of its price and million mile warranty.

I don't know if this is a bad sign or not, but there is only one person with the Borla exhaust?

Default Borla cat-back and headers!

I have the Borla cat-back exhaust and the headers on my 95 2.2 Legacy. Both were very easy to install, and work great. The sound the is deep melow and the car just sounds great (all my frineds tell me that too )

I have the Borla exhaust on my 99 RS. I am very satisfied. Fit and finish is good. It sounds excellent, nice and deep growl but not obnoxious when cruising. I like the look of the single tip personally. I can't say much for performance, I honestly cant rememeber what it felt like with the stock system for comparison. But who cares... It SOUNDS faster! I would recommend it, esp. for the price and with the million mile warranty.
