    Yea mate. Just got one done...best place is ecotune, based in scotland...i'm guessing yours will have lambda sensor so worth checking before buying! Also, any problems with central locking...Colin is your man...did a fantastic job on mine..top bloke!

    Buy a sports cat then you wont fail m.o.t's or have the bother of changing it back it each time before testing

    Diesels don't need cats for MOTs, do they? Certainly according the Ecotune website they don't. Would recommend Ecotune, just bought and fitted my decat pipe on my 2000 320d Touring.
