Default Santro Silencer Kit?

How much would a Santro Silencer Kit cost? My car is making loud exhaust noise, there is drop in pickup and FE too. I had been to Hyundai Motor Plaza, they inspected the car. The tail pipe joining a box like thing has become loose at the joint. It cannot be welded, as per HMP. The technician said the whole silencer kit has to be replaced. The quotation is for Rs 6910/-
Is it so expensive? Do I need to replace the whole kit? Should I use any other after market product for better results (product or cost wise)?

Thanks

Finally replaced the muffler from a local shop. It is some brand called merrit. Replaced the muffler, tail pipe and the mid pipe all for Rs 2100/-
The mechanic was impressed with the quality of the product.

I also had a similar problem in my santro. When checked with HASC, they informed cost INR 7000/- h'ever he suggested to change with local guy as it would cost half that amount.

I checked with local guy who changed their entire silencre assembly for INR 3500/-. The make was "SINGER" with 1 year warrenty. NOw there is no sound. Everything is fine.

Well i finally got my silencer kit replaced at a shop in KK nagar chennai, where they fabricate cheap third rated silencer which i advice no one should fix in their cars.
But the good news is they get reject silencer kit from all companies and fit it up for you.

So i got an original Hyundai silencer kit with a small tiny dent and few scratches at the rate of Rs. 2500/-
Cost at the company must be good 4 times.

Lets see how long this last.
I am hoping a good 3yrs of trouble free period.

@ Visaster could you post the shop's address and contact details so that it may be helpful for other forum members since he has rejected kits from most manufacturers.

I have been running oo after market local silencer kit for the past 5 years.
changed 4 times.
But since i came to chennai it has always been a bad experience.
The last 2 changes was in chennai and terrible experience i had to live with for 1 year every time.
First time they fitted a local made kit which kept hitting somewhere on every small pothole/ bump the whole damn year so i got rid of it after forcefully making it worth the money.
Got it changed the second time this year Jan and i got cheated again.
Chennai is very rude to fools like me.
Anyways i want to get it changed now as the performance is bad with this kit.

Can someone suggest me the best place to get a decent, trouble free exhaust for santro zip drive in Chennai.
What is the difference in the performance between local and company made kit?

Thanks.
