Help Exhaust help for an Alfa virgin!

Hope that someone can help. After many years wanting a 916 Spider I actually got round to buying my first Alfa in May last year and am absolutely loving it!!!!! It's a 3 litre, V6, 24 valve (51 plate) which goes well BUT it sounds really boring! Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not a boy racer. In fact I'm nearer retirement than starting my first job but I do want something that is going to SOUND like a 3 litre V6. I don't want a straight through or anything like that but I need some help from you guys as to what I should be looking for. All sensible suggestions would be most welcome. (If you recommend a particular make or something like that an idea as to the cost would also be appreciated.)

Thanks, in advance, for your help.

Are you sure you have the original exhaust on the car ?? As even the OEM Exhaust sounds quite ok and especially if you've got the top down all the time.
