My neighbour has been quote £1,900 to replace their Honda Jazz exhaust, is this right?

Elderly neighbour been quoted a whopping £1,900 including vat and fitting for full exhaust including cat for a 2008 Honda Jazz 1.4 petrol manual.

Excessive surely? Any ideas where to go? Online suggests around £700 for parts. Car has done 160,000 miles but is surprisingly good.

Although using a main dealer ensures manufacturer parts are used, it also generally the most expensive option. Thankfully there is plenty of choice when it comes to exhaust replacement. You could try an independent Honda specialist, or any number of fast-fit garages that can offer exhaust replacement.

It is also worth mentioning that the catalytic converter will be contributing significantly to the cost of this repair.
