I have been hunting for a front muffler for my '87 5Kcst. Here are
some of the prices I recieved, highest to lowest:
Local Audi dealer: $493.33 12mo/12,000 mile warranty
Local muffler shop: $365.12 1 year warranty
PAP: $245 and change 1 " "
Sears Auto Center: $188 and change Limited Lifetime
Blaufergnugen: $94.00 2 year warranty, 1 from mfg, 2nd
Prices do not include installation, gaskets, bolts, hangers or any
other hardware. (I am not affiliated with any of the above
service/parts organizations.) These all replace stock muffler, which
for my use is fine. I'm use to price variations, but $94 to $494 is a
little broader than I am used to... :-)
I've decided to try the Blaufergnugen unit. It should arrive in a
couple days, along with all the necessary parts and pieces.
Manufacturer is Bozel. (sp?) Anyone looking for a stocker replacement
might want to give Bl...et all a call.
My thanks to William Murin, who posted Blaufergnugen's phone number.
