MKIV R32 Borla exhaust vs Stock flapper mod

I bought the car with a Borla Exhaust and the original owner said he liked the sound of the stock better. The car has no mods other than the Exhaust. I know these are short test but it got the job done for me and I hope others. These are the before and after on the same day, with the same camera. Traction control kicked in on the Borla, turned off for the stock run. Someone else was driving the car when I filmed it so they weren't used to the traction control in that car. Overall I like the stock better but the Borla does have a really nice sound above the power band. The stock with flapper open, is great all the time. Decided for your self. -Shot and edited with a Nokia N8

The car is in "quiet" mode in the first half of the clip and in "loud" mode in the second. The Exhaust sound isn't as raspy in person as it sounds in the video. This is the stock Exhaust with the resonator removed and the flapper mod. enjoy.
