Default Exhaust System replaced

Hi Guys, my exhaust system has become more rusty this winter. KA was not the one and only option, because it seemed quite expensive to me. I have found a small and competent manufactory in Bad Bentheim/Germany.They did a very nice job replacing the old system against a new one completely made by stainless steel. .
The engine sound now comes a little bit deeper and more perceptable.
See those Pictures !

I used to watch Wheelers Dealers when it was good (when Edd China was the mechanic) and in a number of episodes they had a custom Stainless Steel exhaust made for the car they were refurbishing for pretty reasonable prices. I know the Karma’s exhaust is unique, but the same companies should be able to make a replacement Pizza Box resonator for the Karma.

Upload to a photo storage site, e.g., Google Photo, Imgur, etc. and then post the links here.

Nice how is the sound compared to old pizza box exhaust? Louder? Seems like it has less exhaust volume than the original design? Always thought that side pipes would be best solution to reduce noise from exhaust
