    Am I right in thinking that they don't actually have a cat, but a particle filter instead. And as far as I know, the MOT is a smoke emissions test isn't it, which looks purely for excessive smoke?!

    Sam, did it change the sound much by removing it?

    Yeah did it change the sounds when you removed it (as above). I'd be interested in doing this to mine aswell i think, full stainless exhaust without a cat might be coming my way sooner.

    DPF is the new cat iirc. Bin the cat, not essential for MOT.

    Vosa man may have summat to say if you get spot checked

    Can't you just knock out the baffles, so externally it appears that it's still there, yet inside is near enough a straight through pipe? Nobody will ever know then.
