Rip Off or what?

So today I decided to go to a nearby muffler shop which had great reviews online. I went there and asked how much it would be to get my mufflers deleted and when I heard 160 I thought to myself not too bad then he continued and said 160 was for one side. so it would be 320 for both sides. Is that normal or is he ripping me off...

Huge rip off! $160 for both is even high imo.

Not sure about your location, but here the going price is about $100.00 total.

A local sound shop told me that to my face... "how much to instal a subwoofer if I bring everything to you?" "$150" "Dang why so high?" "You're driving a brand new Camaro" and the he laughed.

I turned around and walked out. Then me and a buddy installed it...only cost me a few hours and a few beers.

I paid $75.00 in Macon, GA a year ago. I would think TN should be comparable, so IMHO anything over $100.00 is too much.

Sometimes it's more fulfilling to just roll the window down just slightly & then throw the money out the window.....

Don't worry my shop quoted me $300 and said they'd need the car all day! Like wtf is so hard about cutting them out and throwing a couple pieces of pipe in a bender a few times! :-P needless to say I've been trying to shop around but it looks like $250 for the Doug thorley kit is going to be my cheapest option :-(

Keep in mind, a lot of times it is not a matter of what you think is fair, it is more how much the shop wants the work. If they are slow, maybe the price is $60 to $150 to deal with it. However if they are loaded down with other work, or they just don't want to do this kind of work, the price doubles.

Nothing really worth complaining here about...you are the consumer..spend your money elsewhere.

about $100.00 but don't bother. I had it done today and it barley got any louder. WOT above 3500 I can hear it now but idle and cruising I can hardly hear it running. I am highly disappointed.
