Bimmerworld street or Borla Atak

Hey guys,

I am looking at a used Bimmerworld street version exhaust that I can get for approximately $750 and also a Borland ATAK that I can get for $1000. Both the exhausts have less than 5000 miles on them. I heard a ton of videos on the Borla and really like the aggressive sound but haven't heard how the BW street version sounds (I searched already - there are only videos of the race version on the internet). Does anyone here run the BW street version or have any clips of it sounds? I am contemplating if I should just spend the extra $250 and get the Borla? Is it worth it? What do you guys think?

Get the one you really want. 250 is nothing in the scheme of things

Of course I will. But I haven't heard the BW street version and don't want to miss out if it sounds as good or better than the Borla. So I guess my question is - since there is a lot of talk about the Borla exhuast is it simply hands down the best for the money? On the other hand the BW exhaust is not as popular and I m not sure how folks who have it feel about it. Btw if it helps - regardless of what I get I will be running them with the stock X pipes.

didn't you email me about my AA exhaust like 3 months ago?
I say just pull a trigger on it! Atak sounds great and does not drone much - that would be my choice. Buy it before it's gone tho...

I *just* got my ATAK this past weekend, and I can't say enough good things about it. There is absolute zero drone from 2-3k, which really surprised me. The thing has a very aggressive sound down low that turns into a high pitch wail up top -- I love it!

Borla ATAK for almost 2 years. I love it. Sounds amazing. Lighter than stock. Made well. Go with that.

I have BW street for over a year now. It's more throaty and not as exotic. For the deal I got, $900 new, I'm happy with it but miss the high scream/wail of my straight pipe setup. That exhaust was not livable for DD though when not WOT.
