Wink F30 335i downpipe options

Hello everyone i am currently in the market for a downpipe for my 14 f30 335i, at the moment im sorta set on a gintani downpipe but at the same time it is also $500usd and i live in Canada so i would have to pay conversation plus duties. Where as the vrsf is about half the price at $249, any thoughts on the sound differences if they even have any?

I have VRSF and it sounds just a little louder then stock except when it's in sport and sport plus it pops and burbles and you can hear the turbo spoil pretty clear.

I'm on stock tune.

Plan on tuning soon. I just deal with CEL. Wanted too wait till I had a few more bolt ones and then tune

I got mike off here for $125. I wouldn't over pay for it. It's literally a piece of pipe.

I have a ctsturbo down pipe. Sounds good. Not too loud until you lay into it. And even then it's pretty mild with the mpe. I'd buy it again.

VRSF is one of the most popular options, highly recommend. There isn't much difference for a catless downpipe from a performance or sound standpoint.

i don't understand why would you pay $500usd+conversation+duties when you have this available to you?
