OEM Exhaust Mod Summary - Bay Area...place & price

All, I am about to pull the trigger on doing the OEM exhaust mod, probably the ACM way.

Anyway, did the search and have the following...pretty sure this is not all in the Bay Area. Hope this is useful to others and ping me if you are interested in some type of group buy when we can land on the same shop.

1. Minute Muffler, Dublin - saw a quote of $150 and less than half day (wow)
2. Todd & Exhaust - apparently, it's a minimum 2-day turnaround, but great work
3. Guaranteed Mufflers & Brakes, Fremont - apparently, need to see the car for quote...thought all OEM exhausts are equal
4. Exhaust Works, Belmont - think I saw $250-$300 from some posts before

Feel free to add more and correct me. Guess it's almost a no-brainer to go with Minute Muffler, even if they are a bit out of the way.

Anyone lives or works between Mountain View and San Jose? Would actually love to hear ACM mod in person...I had the experience of going with an aftermarket exhaust in my old 996TT that was simply too much. Benefit is that I got to talk to a lot of neighbors that I never talk to before...

Hope this helps.
