At the weekend when I went had the test drive in the cup, I was having quite a chat with the salesman.
He told me that UK dealers had just found out a possible long term problem with import 172s. Im not sure if he meant all, but he said That import 172s have only one cat box/pipe which comes from the engine and all UK dealer supplied cars have two.
Which of course I already knew mine had two cause I had compared it with Rhys 172 at the Ladybower meet and he only had the one.
Now the problem will arise when all the imported 172s have their first MOT, cause the single cat wont allow the imported 172 to pass due to emissions. To have a the UK double CAT fitted on an imported car will cost £1000.
Just thought Id post this it will be interesting to found out whether there is any truth in the matter.
