Re: Catalytic converter.... problem
If you click on my above link to EB Spares, then either option is listed at £385+vat. A new bracket would have to be bought from the dealers. I'd get a new nuts an bolts also, and even gaskets, but this shold not be more than an extra £50. As I said before, the first one is a de-cat and should work for MOT no probs. Because it has no pre-cats, you main cat will take longer to warm up and need more preconditioning come MOT time, but it will have no functional detriment. It should be more robust and improve performance slightly.
You could just stick with the original type though. Make sure your garage are ok that you get it from a specialist though. They could still get the bracket and fittings.
BTW, EB Spares are a really good company to deal with and I have used them for 16 years now, and never had any issues.
Your car is the 120bhp model and not the 105bhp, right?
