Just cleaning out the garage, I did the decat mod a few months ago and have no use for my cat from my 2.2 ST so I stuck it on eBay and I just got a question asking for a buy it now price from a registered dealer, probably wanting it for the platinum. How much should I tell him?

Don't put it up for auction till next Saturday so there's less competition for mine lol. They don't seem to be all that common I'm finding. Was expecting to get 30-40 quid for it.

A buyer paid 115 for mine there and paid direct via paypal so avoiding eBay fees! Let this be encouragement to all those considering a decat! £70 for the pipe, £115 for the cat, it's a no brainer :L
