Single vs Double Wall Tips?

I'm about to set up some quad tips on my 335i, but I can't decide between double and single walled tips. I like that the single walled look larger, but am worried about what I read about some people thinking they just look like big holes from far away. Any experience here?

Thanks!

I think the singles look more aggressive but the doubles look a little more stock. Just don't want the tips to look "invisible" from far away. Some pictures:

Double

Single and if your worried about it being invisible you can get thicker sidewalls that is still one wall i think that looks the best
