hi, the other day i was backing out and me exhaust tip hit the ground, and caused an ugly damage,
the exhaust shop said 40 bucks to fix it, and then i asked what about a hotdog, and he said 80 fitted, and at the same time fix my tip.
so i dunno what to do, theres apparently an $80 and $120 hotdogs fitted.
what do people recommend for me ?¿

You can a. leave it as is.
b. take this oportunity to make it into a diff dumper.
c. pay the $40 and have it fixed.
d. pay the $80 and have a ressie fitted and the bend fixed.
e. just order an entire new tailpipe and fit it yourself.
e. get some skils and an idea and do it yourself.
take your pick.

If its just the pipe angle, I'd say bend the f**k back urself. But if you seriously grounded out the doggie and tip in the process you might wanna order some new parts.

Its a bit like that.

had an issue with the trans. Brian Cousions (i think thats what its called) wanted $44 to put it on the diagnostic tester. Even if it didnt have a problem i still have to pay $44.

DRW automatics did it for free. Next day was down there to buy a solinoid off them :)
