3.0L replacement exhaust suggestions 2024

I'll continue my search but I figured I'd start a current thread, for some fresh discussion

I finished a complete mechanical service on that E36. I'm going to be daily driving that for a few weeks. That thing is actually great. Now the X5 is back in the garage for a similar laundry list of needs, including the oil pan gasket and transmission output shaft seal. So the exhaust is going to be coming down. Perfect.

I was going to post a picture, but we've all seen it, the rusty 3.0 exhaust with the tips that angle down. I don't want to put that one back up. It is well out of place on this car, they really did wrong with those tips.

I would like to get the nice shiny silver tips from that 4.8L or 4.6, whatever it was. Nothing absurdly loud though. Just a good sound, stock-ish volume. It's mostly for looks. Suggestions?

What about headers, are there any nice upgrades for a 3.0 to pair with a nice exhaust? I have to run cats but maybe there's a good high flow cat out there. TIA
