I'm thinking the Borla S-Types are too loud :(

Hey guys. I got the Borla S-Type catbacks and they sound phenomenal. Tone-wise they sound amazing. But they're pretty damn loud... louder than I was expecting.

Driving around town I hear my car just thunderously echoing off of buildings along the street, especially when driving down city blocks. I feel like I'm that ********* that has a super loud car just to deafen people and annoy them, but that was never my goal. I wanted the sound of the engine to sound better... more gurgly and muscle car-ish than stock, but not ridiculously loud.

Does anyone feel the same? Also I'm wondering if there would be a similar exhaust (i.e. better tone than stock) that would be quieter. I really love the S-Types but I also like to step on it, and when I do, even slightly, it gets really loud really fast.
