Good muffler suggestions on a base cls500 06'?

I just recently got my resonator deleted on my 2006 cls500.. I love the sound although it is only heard when racing the engine or reving it. I wanted to have that little bit of deep throaty noise when i start my car and while at idle. I am assuming that my stock cls500 (non sport mufflers) are buffering this as I can hear the noise but it's quite faint. Can anyone provide any suggestions, I looked all over amazon and magnaflow etc and realized I have no idea what to even look for.. I don't need anything too crazy or nothing to wake up my block, but I do wanna hear the engine when I turn it on and some throaty idle tones. I have been looking at used cls 63 mufflers and they are around the 500 dollars range so I think i'll pass on that.

Can you recommend anything for the NA cls500 really Just want some idle noise and startup noise aggressive but can still go grocery shopping type of sound lol. Nothing too crazy. I am in California so I didn't delete the cats I don't think I can pass smog if I do. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I just found a set of used cls550 amg sport mufflers for around 270, would this combined with my deleted resonator create a good sound? I have been looking for a little bit more then the stock amg sport although it sounds nice on my s550 with amg sport package. Also wanted to confirm that these would make any noticeable difference in sound as they item numbers they have them listed for are the same as the item numbers for the stock oem mufflers.
2194910201 , 2194910301 ..... The seller claims these are amg sports package mufflers.. just wanna make sure I'm not just buying stock mufflers with amg tips on them.

Would upgrading the cats make a bigger difference then putting on a better muffler?

Magnaflow is known to have a deep sound. It is not excessively loud also.

I run a magnaflow muffler with straight through design on my w203, and was thinking of getting a pair for my w219. Not expensive, sounds great, and adds noticiable power

which magnaflows did you get? They have so many choices. I wish they had one of those try me buttons on each muffler to give a sample of hr sound.
