    Pre-cat.......Not the usual post!

    Hi everyone.

    Just wanted to post up and inform people with coupes that its best to check yours before you order.

    After reading numerous posts on here saying that later cars have the two piece section, I went ahead and ordered my replacement from courtenay (excellent service might I add...ordered on a monday afternoon and was at my house first thing the next morning) went to fit it and found that mine is all one section.

    My cars a 2005 G so dont believe everything you read just check for yourself to make sure.

    Im quite lucky because at my work we have alot of equipment and good welders so im taking my cat section in tonight to be modified to make it into a two piece section.

    I hate that, I wish people would get their facts right when they make these statements on here.
    Its just the same as everyone saying that a one piece only came on coupes, my 2003 gsi hatch had a one piece, lucky I had ordered a full system including sports cat or i would have been buggered.

    Yeagh, You are right. Sorry folks, just feeling a bit ratty, my boss is pissing me off today so I thought I would be productive and come on here for a while.

    i have corrected people on here loads of times that pot up "only astra coupes before 2002 had 1 peice" as its not true i have worked on quite a few coupe turbos now and some of the 2003 and 2004 ones had single peice cats so you have to check, its jsut hit or miss if u had a 2 peice one
