Rear exhaust box quoted 297.44

Hi,

I've recently bought a 1.3multijet punto and I can see on the old advisories that for the last 3 years it has said "rear exhaust box badly corroded, outer skin falling away"

It then quotes 297.44 for the repair. This seems excessive. I've looked around and can see that back boxes for 1.2 puntos cost about 78 before fitting.

Is this a special box that costs 200+ or is this just Nationwide autocentres taking the old owner for a mug?

I'd quite like to have it repaired for piece of mind the car's done less than 45k and is on a 53 plate it's the mk2b/3 type.

Just looking for advise, many thanks

Getting mugged by the shop I think, especially when you can get an Abarth SS exhaust for less that 150 on eBay.
