Hi everyone

I am new BMW owner and newish to the forum. I have bought my 1st BMW last year :). I managed to get a good deal on it as it needed a engine rebuild.

1993 E36 M3, The engine work is coming along slowly but getting there, no rush to get it on the road as have a few other cars but I am looking forward to using the car :)

My question is. Do I have to put the exhaust CAT back on or can I run the car (legally) without the CAT?

I don't know what the law is on CAT's?

Any help much appreciated

It wont get though an MOT without the CAT but general driving about you should be okay (technicaly illegal but havent seen anyone busted for it yet), will be pretty noisy though!

lol yea there's a team mib in lost but you'd have to get to episode 1 of season 5 to know for sure but the hints were there from the very start.


Shame on you for not getting past season 1 of tv's greatest story ever. :hihi

You must buy the dvd box set and watch from start to finish you just must. :thumbsup

Cars before Aug 91 can go for an MOT without a CAt, and drive on the road legally without one too, anything after Aug 92 MUST have a CAT for an MOt, and will be driving illegally on the road without one. You can get a sport CAT fitted. A 200 cell unit is good. I have one on my car, and was only £90 fitted.

Where abouts nr. Reading are you?

I live near Pangbourne but work in Central Reading, You?

I am hoping to pick up a low mileage engine end of this month for my car so hopefully may get the car on the road next month. Plan is to get it on the road by May so I can use it on my Road trip in June :)
