muffler repair on 1998 Volkswagen Golf

we got a quote to replace the muffler for 247. We we got to the shop they told us that the resonator had fallen off and the repair would be around 500. Please let me now if this is a reasonable quote or if the resonator is part of the muffler and he is making this stuff up thanks doug Mohrmann

Here's our estimator link: https://repairpal.com/estimator?car_type_id=2393 If you're using original VW parts, they're usually fairly expensive. I don't know what the prices are for exhaust parts, but you could check online for parts prices. You'll have to pay up to about 2 hours labor time, I'd expect but you may find a more exact figure on the estimator.
