e39 catalytic converter
I am replacing 1 or both cats on my '01 530i. I have several options of replacement cats. I found a set for sale on ebay in England. My dilemma is determining whether or not there is a difference between Euro cats and U.S. cats. Perhaps the difference in arrangement of steering linkage from a right side drive bmw to a left side drive bmw is different enough to require different parts? basically I need to know that the U.K. cat will fit a canadain/U.S. BMW (mine). I have contacted seller and am currently awaiting reply. If anyone has any specific information on the compatibility of the parts discussed above, please share. I am positive that the cat needs replacing. I just need to know cats from a Euro bimmer and cats from a U.S. bimmer are in fact compbaitle before completing the repair myself. Thanks.
