Is this crack repairable?

Thinking about buying this muffler but it has a crack near the tip. Is it repairable? and will the repair last?

I am putting it on my wife's 2015 BMW M3. I noticed the crack is at a weight bearing area. I'm just wondering if the repaired welds will hold the weight over time.

The only weight it's bearing is the tip. Have a shop MIG weld it up and it'll be fine. It looks it cracked/tore because the tip hit something. Not from weight.

Should be repairable, maybe your muffler shop can weld a small bracket from the pipe to the muffler for extra support

Just make sure they stop-drill and/or clean the crack before welding to prevent propagation.
