: How loud is the borla or b&b while driving

I commute 150 miles a day in my v. I know I should buy a Prius or something. All of the borla vids on YouTube show exterior exhaust notes. Anyone have an interior vid? Or for those owners who do have how loud is it over stock. I field a lot of calls and so I don't want anything that drones or is too loud while cruising

Don't go with B&B if you're concerned about using the phone. The exhaust will make it difficult to hear/be heard. When I use the bluetooth in my V with a B & B, the person on the other line often comments on how great my car sounds.

Secondly, a lot of people on here must drive with no sound either and complain about little things. I tried making a video, but the sound didn't really come through. The only place you will hear a B&B is 1800 - 2100. Other than that it will be dead quiet and non-existent.

borla with an aftermarket intake is not bad at all pretty quiet with 6m at 80-85 on interstate

Dvandentop do you mind making a vid? I want to get an exhaust and tune but am worried the borla would be too loud. Thanks for the responses

I've been looking for a good video for a long time now.

I would not be concerned about fielding calls when cruising the highway. It's really not obtrusive at those RPMs. When I'm running up through the gears, I've had folks on my bluetooth comment (again, as barryg said, they're positive remarks!)

Borla is actually pretty tame just cruising on the highway at 70-75. More rumble then stock but nothing I would consider annoying. I drive about 50 miles a day.

And this helps our V guy make a decision on an exhaust how?

I tried a 1080 video, but the sound waves just cancelled each other or something. When played, it was just a dead spot for the sound.

Not sure if you've seen this yet but it seems to give a good representation on the sound from the Borla. I'm thinking of getting one as well.

I've seen that one, and like it, but want to see that same style video but from a sedan. I'm sure the sound is similar, but would like to know for sure.

I would also like to see it for the sedan. Didn't borla make their coupe system louder?
