The sound is VERY different. I want to say the Borla was louder but the Akra has opened up and is loud in its own right. Hard to determine which was louder.
The Akra has a more "euro" sound. The Borla had a good amount of drone compared.
I love the Akra sound. The craftsmanship is top notch. You cant go wrong with either but I think if I had to choose again the Akra is a no brainer.

Thanks for your post... I use to have a 135i but with no mods other than cosmetic, then I got an S3 and installed a TBE from Milltek, the I bought a Mini JCW but sold it after 3 weeks with no mods. Now I have the 1M which I keep on keeping for a while.
I have a friend that has a Akra installed with mad dad midpipes and i love the sound of it but i was trying to find maybe someone in this forum that can tell me that the borla would be a better option.
I still have my doubts but in the end, the akra its probably going to be the winner.
