Default Invidia R400 or Borla catback in 2008 hatchback STi

Which one would you recommend to enhance the rumble, minimise rasp and has no drone?
The car is a 2008 JDM twinscroll hatchback and although I am aware it will never sound like a singlescroll which has ULH, I've heard the Invidia R400 in the same car and liked it but I am not sure about the Borla.
What about the quality of the exhausts, is it similar?
Although I am tempted to go for the Invidia as I've heard it and its quality looks great, the only thing I don't like are its exhaust tips and prefer the Borla look.
If anyone has any photos of either exhaust fitted in a hatchback or saloon I'd appreciate it as long as your feedback.
Many thanks!

borla makes a quality product. hit youtube and listen to all the sound clips for both exhausts you are interested in. to me borla has a better sound than invidia, but everybody hears something different.

I listened to a bunch of sound clips on Youtube before I got a deal on a Cobb turboback system, and my top two exhausts were the Greddy Supreme SP and the Borla, mainly because they sounded so unique.

I have the Borla cat-back on my '14 and have been very happy with it. I really like the sound, and it's not loud enough to upset the neighbors.

I also have the borla on a 2011 Sti sedan. With a Catless downpipe and it sounds really good. I've had more compliments than I could ever count.
