Exclamation Save 300 on a cat or not? HELP big Decision! Lag II

Hi All

Had car in the stealers today and they have found two faults. One is the motorized throttle and one the cat converter functional fault.

They think the cat fault is causing the throttle fault.

ANYWAY, they want 600 all in to fit a new one!!!!!!!!!!

I can get one fitted at my local tyre place for just under 300.

The Dealer informs me that they have had problems with after market ones and thinks I'd be silly and best going OE. He says they had one guy get an after market and had to replace within 6 months with OE in end!

What do you all think?

Aftermarket 300


Dealer 600

(If we then find the throttle is still the issue that will be another 250!!!!!!!!!)
