Just got a quote for a stainless steel twin 2.5 mandrel system for my xr8 supplied and fitted for $900, is this a decent price?

cheers

What sort of system did you end up getting? I tried using only the centre muffler only with twin straight through pipes out the rear and it sounded bad although that was a twin berklee setup.
