Vibrant muffler or Euro-Spec muffler??

Since money is tight and I have enough money for a decent muffler I narrowed it down to these two mufflers and wanted to know from you guys who have experience with one of these which one is wetter sounding? I've watched almost every YouTube video but I feel they almost sound te same?

I'm favoring eurospec muffler more because of the stainless steel look over the black vibrant stealth muffler.
Ultimately I was thinking euro-spec with one res delete? Any feedback would be good!

Or just get bimmerbrakes headers and keep my stock muffler and call it a day? (they don't have ceramic coated headers anymore though)

I'd suggest headers over just a muffler. Right now I have eBay headers and a magnaflow muffler and it sounds great!

I love my eurospec muffler. Sounds perfect; not too loud but much more aggressive than stock. Someone just recently posted a video of eurospec muffler with headers and that too sounded amazing.

I don't think I can get headers since I live in pa and they do a visual inspection and I'll need to get cats and thats too expensive and annoying. I was DYING to buy headers until I found out about that I would much rather have headers and a muffler delete than just a muffler but looks like i have no choice :/

You guys have any suggestions with inspections and catless headers?
