I know, I actually called around and asked before I gutted it to see if its worth selling the stock DP and get a catless, scrap yards in the area all offered me $40 for it. So people can say all they want, I'm not convinced.
Scrap yard isn't in the game of handling BMW cats. They treat a 1996 Chevy Cavalier and 2015 BMW 328i cat the same. We both know that a "working, not failed" 2015 BMW cat is going to be more than a NEW Cavalier unit - scrapper doesn't care he wants the recycle value.

Look on ebay at "completed sales" - $180 - $450+ USD for working catalytic converters for 328/330/335/340. Its easy to find out - the data is there.
