Want Exhaust System for TS but not lose Alfa Rasp

Im looking for an exhaust system for my 2.0TS Spider. Preferably with quad tips.
One major condition is that it keeps its Alfa Rasp and doesn't sound like a chaved up Civic or Corolla with a stupidly fat exhaust that just expels a noise.

Anyone with advice and/or videos?

Go see your local "longlife" exhaust centre............... I had one built for my GTV................. They'll make you a stainless one however you want it ..........and to sound however you want.

............... i had mine done a couple of months back for 369 ........ Flexi back.......... Looks great and sounds awesome.

Most aftermarket systems will loose the Alfa rasp I am afraid.

If you are swapping for a stainless system, then the sound tends to be deeper because of the way sounds travels through it. It will sound good, but in a different way.

Have a listen to a few on youtube, that will help you decide.
