I had Midas do the exhaust on my wife's Acura, and I recall that it saved me about $500 over the dealer. I never found out how long their stuff lasts, because the car was totalled by a hit and run driver within a year of getting the muffler done. Midas did let me "peek" at their work; one thing that I noticed was that they weld all their stuff together. Is this normal? I sorta cringed when I saw flames and sparks right underneath my undercoated floor pan. Another MB mechanic once told me *very emphatically* not to take my Mercedes to Midas.
