Getting some exhaust work this week

I'd like to finish my exhaust with a 3'' cat back. I've heard a custom set up with a magnaflow muffler and no res - it's pretty loud and farty for me. I've also heard the JT single muffler set up WITH a res - not too loud but it didn't really inspire me.

I'm gonna make an appointment with a local exhaust guy and i'll see what he recommends, but what do you guys think I might wanna look into? I'm thinking 3'' SS from the cat back, one muffler (any recommendations?) and maybe a res.
I REALLY like the way this guys 9-3 sounds:

And I'm trying to get tips like the stock ones from an s60r, like these

yea my friend has a similar set up as you on his og900. too loud for my taste. i want to keep it classy because it's going on my 9-5. Now i'm leaning towards a single muffler with a res. Anyone like borla on their saabs?

I have a res and magnaflow. It's not loud at all, but it is only 2.5".

I got impatient and I ordered this today
http://borla.com/products/product_mu...?cat=2&type=43

It's the 3'' inlet/outlet model. I figure that I'll try that out at first and if it sounds bad I'll get a res put in. Can't hurt right?
