The guys at German Autoparts offered me an OEM front muffler for about $100
less than Didi's price, George.  That would more than cover the shipping to
you.  I only had a big hole in that piece, so I didn't check their prices
on other parts.  I ended up paying a local muffler shop $150 for a pair of
straight-thru mufflers and the pipe bending to fit them into the OEM
muffler's space.
