With this list I priced the mufflers and tailpipes and found them to be marked-up 20-25%. This repair took 2 hrs. and cost close to $600. I'm guilty of not getting a price quote from another muffler shop and not having any idea of what the pricing was on the list of items used. I can't help but feel that I could of gotten this job done for a better price! As far as recommending this muffler shop, I'd shop around and see what the competition has to offer. When you get a free repair quote from melody muffler make sure that you get it in writing.
