    Need new cat. Any recommendations?

    My stock cat on my 88 325is has finally bit the dust (after 30 years of service, I'm not too surprised).

    Been shopping around and noticed Bosal seems to make a decent setup that looks pretter similar to stock (I'd like to keep it as close to stock as possible). Part # BOSAL 0615010. Oh and my muffler tips are looking pretty crusty too (OEM muffler replaced back in the late 90s). Wouldn't mind replacing everything from front to back.

    Any other recommendations? I'm looking for something comparable to stock as everything else is mostly stock on my ride.

    thanks in advance!

    I recommend a grey tabby male. I had one of those and he was awesome. Then my girlfriend and I broke up and she took him to her new apprtment. Still miss that little guy.

        Hey Stanley when you decide what to do please do post. I am in the same boat in all respects (except the cat).

            Bumping this thread as I get more creative ideas.

            Currently considering a pair of resonators, similar to those in the link below:

            Has anyone done anything similar?

            These would be installed in place of the OEM cat. Not sure what dimensions I'll need, other than the stock tubing is 1.75 inches in diameter (would these be too long?). I'd like the appearance to look as close to stock as possible. Anyone know how long the stock cat setup is?

            thanks in advance

              Why not find someone parting a car, that has a good, used catalyst, and install that on your car? The factory units were built with great quality, far superior to those of the universal ones.

              Ooooooooor, you could make the trip down south, and buy my whole exhaust system :)

                  I don't think I want a cat anymore. And I'd also like to stay true to the dual exhaust setup, no "two into one into two" nonsense. Similar to how the stock setup is.

                    That's a good idea, but I'd rather go with something new. Nothing worse than installing something used, just to have it fail again on you.
                    My motto is: "Do it right the first time, or don't bother doing it at all".

                    Thanks for the offer, but I would like to stick with a dual setup that's similar to stock. The 2-1-2-1-2 etc on your exhaust just isn't my style, which is why i declined it.

                      No worries. Thatís my reason for wanting to sell it, also.
