Screwed at Meineke for my Exhaust

I wanted them to take my GT mufflers and GT tips, and replace them with the Spintech mufflers/Stainless Steel 3" tips. I was told it'd be 1-2 hours, at $60/hr... I asked him a few times if they could weld it and do everything, they said no problem..(I went to a custom exhaust place that does great work, but is kinda expensive, they did my original V6 exhaust, said it'd cost $150, I figured I'd go to meineke, should be quick, save some $)

Hmm... after about an hour and a half they say they can't do it cause they have to weld it..they thought it was bolt on ..plus the mufflers "don't fit" ..but they figure they can do it if they spend another hour or so..

They couldn't swap the tips because mine were rusted (they're stainless steel, put on about 3 months ago) so they gave me new tips ..$100 w/labor;

Couldn't fit GT mufflers on the V6, so gave me 2 new meineke "performance" mufflers (sound loud, the guy says they sound the same 2: ). Those cost about $30 each...

Then they decided to up it from $60/hr to $68/hr ...total came to $350 ; ah well.
My GT mustang now sounds a lot quieter then the V6 w/the spintechs, but a nice deep sound. V6 sounds loud, but I'm selling it so doesn't matter too much. Overall the GT is in good shape , but $350...

Next on my list, stereo + light bar. I'll have pictures up soon.

For comparison, I had my shop weld on two mufflers, build me a custom h pipe, sell me and install dynomax tail pipes, and weld on chrome tips for slightly more than what you paid.

Its alright man, its a mistake, just chalk it up as a loss and learn from it. Same thing happened to me when I had my first V6 Mustang about two years ago.

I would go up there and tell them to go on and bring George Foreman out, cuz I was pissed.

At least your car has better exhaust.
