Ok, I'm going to take some photos and confront them, not sure how much a battle I want to fight with these guys but it looks like they blatantly lied, I have an invoice saying they changed it.

It was done for free but if they did lie, a pretty ****ty thing to do and dumb as hell especially when I'd still see the leak and know a thing of two about the job (thanks to the forums) so perhaps it was an honest mistake?

And, just looked at my dash cam. The camera comes on every time the car ignition is turned on. The car went onto the lift at 11:59am at 12:23pm it's off the lift - wow they did it in 22 mins, these guys are good!

Took it back a second time and they appeared to have actually removed the muffler this time. Not sure if the leak has been fixed but now the car sound like a dump truck, they must of not tightened the muffler properly! This shop is really a joke.

So now off to a muffler shop I guess. I wonder if it's just the o rings they didn't replace or perhaps just get them to use new bolts???
