You could always get a Novitec exhaust, they are a bit more expensive but there's a user on the forums called Incognito, and he swears by a pair, he has alot of videos to judge the sound of the kit aswell.

I had the Alfatune exhaust on my 156 with a remap. Sweet sound, not too loud, but no videos alas. Sounded great in tunnels too. It was the one big thing Dan recovered from my old 156.

I'm looking for a 159SW (hence lurking round here) and depending on cost, will be considering a remap with new exhaust system. Not sure yet and will depend if I can get it up to Gus or if there's somewhere a little more local.

Another system thrown into the mix lol.

Thanks, just Google'd the system, the tail pipes look very large not my cup of tea. I also like the idea of buying from someone who can supply and fit just to make things simpler.

What engine did you have in the 156?

I went for the Wizard pipes because I completely trust Autolusso, I have asked Lawrence for his thoughts on things before and I get an honest opinion, some ideas Ive had I have just dropped because of his advice, some I have gone for.
As I said earlier, the Brera/Spider pipes are completely different to anything on a 159, time will tell.

By changing the back pipes does that mean that I have to tell the insurance company, with a remap then yes but just for pipes ?

Technically we are supposed to tell them if we change anything. In my opinion just an excuse in many cases to charge you admin fees and a little more premium.

Brera/Spider & 159 exhaust parts are different, they're just a big round 4" chromed trim on the 159 but the Brera/Spider use a Y-piece each side and two smaller tailpipes which are slash cut both on the vertical to follow the inward curve of the bumper and on the horizontal to follow the rounded lines at the back of the car, hence why prices are different.
