    Blah blah dont wanna spend a shitload at the VW dealer for the cats/installation.

    Is it cheaper to get a full aftermarket exaust or possibly buy the cats and have a muffler shop install them?

    what should I do!:wavey:

    It's illegal to buy/sell used cats, but I suggest you find some local guy with a wrecked passat to 'give' you his.

    Or, depending on where you live and depending on your local emissions laws, just get them punched out, or put a straight pipe installed.

    I'm assuming you have a 1.8T, if so, www.ecstuning.com has an OEM replacement CAT for $359.95.

    Is your old cat gone or does it have a hole in it and can't pass inspection?

    There are cat and muffler repair kits to cover holes for under 20 bucks.
