    Agree totally.
    After much thinking over this in the past (yes, Im sad I know )I think it comes down to the health of the engine as the main factor in if the car passes emissions without a cat on it.

    A low miles minter has a far better chance of passing than a 300k miles ex taxi.....

    or at least thats what I reckon
