Default Rawtek Eco vs Rawtek performance kit?

Planning on going with a Malone stage 2 and dpf delete. Rawtek offers two options for my 2013 jetta sportwagen. The eco and performance kits seem to be identical except the eco uses the stock muffler and the performance kit uses rawtek’s cat back exhaust. The eco kit would be about $1000 and the performance kit about $1500. What’s the benefit of going with the performance kit? Is it worth the extra 500ish?

Any ideas how much louder? You tube clips help, but aren't the best. I'm looking at the same systems. I know performance will be louder.

What I'm really concerned with knowing is the difference while cruising on the highway at light load. I have a lot of windshield time with cruise set on the highway and don't want to have to crank the radio to drown out an exhaust note.
