The picture that Dackelone posted in this thread shows no secondary cats. Am I to assume that RealOEM's diagram is incorrect? I suppose I could order through my dealer and inspect upon arrival to verify.
One other question: with the elimination of the secondary cats are exhaust emissions affected? My home state here in the USA requires an annual safety and emissions inspection and I want to make sure nothing changes so the vehicle will no longer pass their testing.
I ordered my N55 midpipes from http://getbmwparts.com/
. for about $333 plus shipping to Va. Their diagram also showed the cats in the pipes, but they said the diagram was wrong... and they were correct. It came without the cats [I think the price is the giveaway-- if it is in the $330-350 range, you got the correct one].
