SPIDER 3.0 v6 exhaust

Hi-I've done a search and yes, there are loads of exhaust stuff for the 3.0 litre, but not so much for the spider.
I've got a stainless system fitted now, and it is really quiet-it,s aftermarket with the rear silencer fitted between the centre section and the rear axle /suspension mounting points-the bit between the rear suspension axle and bumper where the oem silencer sits is empty!
Im after a more sporty exhaust without any boom when driving-I was thinking wizard, but this maybe a bit too loud for a spider.
I really would like a dual outlet system where the exhaust tips exit both sides of the car, not just the left.
Does anybody have any suggestions as to what will work for me?
Thanks

Wizard Exhaust for the Spider is fairly loud, however there is no cruising boominess. Its volume is very highly proportional to the throttle pedal too, so if you're nursing it around a residential area it is much quieter than when you have the throttle pinned. Some other exhausts are not like this, some I have seen are boomier on the overrun than on power.

If you're wanting something more subtle, we can add in an extra silencer in the middle section.

This has to be one of my favourite videos:


Pic of the two middle sections we do for the GTV/Spider V6 - I don't know of any videos yet with the middle silencer fitted, we've hardly sold any of them compared to the unsilenced.

I added the middle section, removing the unsilenced section. Car very nearly ready after refurb so can post a vid soon.

I have a Wizard on my GTV Cup and it's only intrusive if you are cruising (quickly) on the motorway where it can get a bit tiring after 3-4 hours. I can't imagine it is much different on a Spider just a bit louder.

How much did the Wizard exhaust set you back? I'm thinking about one for my Twinnie after hearing so much good stuff about them.
