Catalytic converter prices

I sold mine at the start of the year for £320 (182 Cat) and replaced it with a PMS 200 cell sports cat which set me back £225. Seemed like a no brainer to me. Sent all the pictures to Tommy who bid me but he never paid up for some odd reason 🤷‍♂️ Must be a busy bloke. Sold it to a Terry Appleton in the end who paid me the same money. No hassle.

I didn't think PMS sold the 182 cat separately?

They will sell it separate, as i enquired about it a while ago. I think it's like £225 extra if you buy the exhaust system. But they wanted something like £350 for just the CAT (don't quote me on that price though it was a year ago i asked). But as my system is 2.25 sleeved, it wouldn't have fitted and would have needed modifying to work. So wasn't worth the cost.

I ended up getting one made up from a Magnaflow 200 cell universal cat (cost me £74), and a milltek decat (£38) i managed to pick up cheap on ebay.

Still got the original 182 CAT, i meant to sell it ages ago

Can’t you contact the guy on Facebook that’s been mentioned many times in this thread? Probably be the best guy to speak to (Tommy)

Wether it’s of any use or help to anyone,

A friend of mine is 90% through building a website/ app to give cat prices via their code.

I believe he’s also buying them at that price but I’d have to confirm that.

i sold mine to a guy on facebook his name is something like zilvanius makleneesius just search on the facebook clio forums for cats and his name will be mentioned numerous times there, pays top money and replies quickly to messages.
 
Is that because he takes at least 3 weeks to reply 🙈
I just ring him until he answers🤷‍♂️😂 Plus his unit is 1 min from my mams and his house is only 15 mins away😂

I stopped buying and giving prices because whenever I did people got snotty with me that I was making £20 on them. I decided my time was worth more than £20, having people get all uppity with me because I didn't tell them their cats are worth a gazillion quid is grating😂

Sold my Clio 182 cat today for £440. The inners were loose and moving around, so it was only going to break up over time and become useless.

Cheap eBay jobbie for the MOT and a decat for the rest of the year.

Ph.2 cat must be pushing towards a grand now?

Is a 55 plate 1.3 petrol Yaris cat worth anything? I’ve got one (whole car) to fix up and punt on. Pretty sure it’s original exhaust so would it be worth selling the cat and fitting an eBay job?

He's only 30 minutes from me so I just dropped it off and he paid me via PayPal friends and family. Quite a lot of people on the facebook groups use him though, I believe most post to him. I imagine he pays via PayPal upfront. So you'll have fees and postage off what you're getting

He pays paypal upfront then arranges a collection at his cost, mines being collected tomorrow

Just spoke to Ktec about their sports cat, when pressed about their guarantee and MOTs they said 'should' pass they but only if very hot. Much confidence Invoked!

I had a ktec one on my R26 megane. It did eventually bring the EML on, but think it passed the MOT after a good ragging.

I'm just not sure it's worth over 3x the price of a BM catalysts Ebay special?

Surely the ktec one is just a cheap cat used also then? I've kept the pipes and just sold the cat...I got 625 notes in aberdeen

Compare that to gold at a mere £1200 per ounce.

The main reason for the price hike is that rhodium used in cats only gets mined as a byproduct from platinum mining and there is no demand for platinum vs a huge demand in rhodium because of emissions laws getting stricter and stricter.
