: I cant see spending 800 dollars on an exhaust system for just the cat back. If anyone has a used one for sale I would be interested.
$800? My dealer quoted just under $500 for essentially the OEM same part on a 94 530i, plus an hour and a half labor to cut out the old one and put in the new one. Check around, maybe your dealer is the problem. And I've seen mixed reviews on fit of aftermarket systems - it's a tight fit back there, and if you look close you'll see subtle bends and tapers on the OEM parts to clear the IRS. Good luck.
