Q: muffler repair on 1998 Volkswagen Golf

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
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

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.
