Default Loose Cat converter

I have a 96 318ti.

The cat under the car seems to be loose. Like it was slipped on without any clamps or bolts. I can wiggle it around, and I can hear it rattle when I accelerate from stop. This isn't normal right?

Not at all!! As far as I know the cat is part of the midpipe section and shouldn't move or even be clamped!

BTW where are you located? I still have my stock ti exhuast if you want to buy it (shameless plug).

Annoying but it helps control spam.

You may want to delete your address once you guys connect or you will end up with a lot of spam yourself!
