mid pipes were leaking on my car a couple years ago...went to local muffler shop they cut old section out, bent new tubes, welded...done.

$250 for both sides.

I agree with moses0324; a competent exhaust shop should be able to cut the corroded section out, then fabricate and weld in a replacement. Some people on this board have even had success by just welding over the holes, although that strikes me as a band-aid fix that will just buy a bit of time.

Going the OEM replacement route at the dealer is super-expensive -- over $2k -- due to the fact that it includes the secondary cats.
