Hi all

My aunt has had her cat stolen on her Honda CRV. It is Jan 2006 model with the 2.0 petrol engine.
Is it worth replacing it? I don't know what to look for in a replacement part and costs to replace it etc

Thanks

If you replace the cat there's a high probability they'll nick that one too! I know someone that it happened to.

Thought this was about a pet a first
Either decat it and have a tune installed to ... ahem... remove the light (which will give way more power)

Or find another kitty on ebay, prob the one knicked.

It is not that simple, you need to see where they cut the exhaust to see what is missing.
you probably need to take to a mechanic or maybe a friend that knows about cars.

Dad had his stolen a few months ago, same car too.

I was thinking it would be an insurance job, but apparently he managed to get a friend of a friend to replace it with a generic part for about £180.

This is what I thought, if the whole section of exhaust needs replacing then that is more

I have to lol at the effort it must take to steal a cat which is probably worth £50.

It takes 1-2 minutes - round here they tour supermarket car parks looking for Hondas and Toyotas or as it's pretty quick just going round residential areas and stopping in the road suffices:

At least they show good business efficiency and productivity.
