    Can someone give me a rough idea on the full cost, parts and labour to change the broken cat on a Mondeo for a new working one.

    It depends on the garage really but I would say around the £120 as thats what the garage that my dad owns would charge.

    Almost all are computer based now, very few manual ones left.

    True, but they still exist and are worth knowing about. My last MOT certificate on the toy car has emissions readings of 0.00 and 0.00 ...

    It has almost a years MOT so I won't worry about it for now.

    Aslong as a knackered cat doesnt have any side effects or annoying noises/rattles?

    If it completely collapses then its a problem and it could make some noise as it breaks up but otherwise no. A secondhand one down the scrappy shouldnt be much.

    I read some interesting info about how unleaded can be lethal without a cat, far worse then lead ever was due to unburnt fumes
