The parts them selves should be no more than a few hundred bucks... even if they replaced the one or two O2 sensors aft of the converter... (one or two depending on what model you drive).
Why in the heck did you spend that much... it would take me ten mins MAX to change that thing..
You over paid.

Also to the OP, your car does have 2 cats but they should be part of the same piece. An E46 has separate cats for cyl 1-3 and 4-6 but that wasn't untill the M54's.
The cats in your car should look like this for an E36 with any of the 6cyl engines, and the factory ones only come complete like that not separate pieces for the left and right sides.
