I reckon they are! As I said.. I spoke to the sales guy earlier and he called it a conflict in numbers!! I said they were very clever with that and hung up.. I would be fuming if I bought them thinking they were 100.
I will phone Mstyle tomorrow and double check their claim!
Good plan! F**k Direnza then lol
Most of the sellers on ebay were selling 100cell, but they have all been out of stock for ages (from what I have seen), and therefore they are all selling 200cell cats now, so it's more than likely they just haven't updated there website.
Direnza stuff is the same as Toyosports, xs power, SS-Autochrome, Japspeed etc etc.
No different from the likes of GSF selling parts under the v-tech brand, it's just a made up brand name, rather than selling white box items with no brand name.
Surprised you mention a national parts company..
If companies advertise 100 cell but supply 200 cell.. That's a massive difference and cannot be done.
Yes very true, but as I said, it's probably a case of them not updating there website (although now that you have bought there attention to it, they really should update it asap)
I spoke with the guy and in his words... 'ALL of our sports cats are 200 cell' when I questioned the 100 cell on their website. So no they have never done 100 cell, therefore it's not a case of running out of stock.
It's a sales ploy.
Yeh thats really not good then.
Good job you checked
The Mstyle Photo look very similar to the Direnza Cats.
I wonder if this is the Toyosports, xs power, SS-Autochrome, Japspeed brand again.
I bet they are all 200 Cell Cats.
I shall check tomorrow don't worry!
Haven't people had bad experiences with MStyle in the past anyway actually?
Let us know how you get on Lee
I always thought standard cats were 400 cell too??? Apart from CSL being 200 cell and im sure I read 05 onwards being 200 cell aswell?
More developments... I've been researching this for a few hours now, hard to get concrete evidence on wether the E46 M3 has 200 or 400 cell cats as standard. One thing is for sure, 100 cell is the preferred option to get the baby flowing.
So.. I've found and emailed to check a company who make and have stock of 100 cell cats. They are a small German engineering company that make them and offer both 100 and 200 cell.
eBay item 331095809182. Again for the £ it is a REAL 100 cell option.
I shall report once I receive them.
Good luck mate! Hope these work out
20hp gains are a tad optimistic lol but looks a good deal and company name seems suspiciously similar to the original eBay cats company
Yes mate, not interested in the 'gains' just wanted to make sure I was getting 100 cell stainless cats.
guys I am selling my milltek 100 CELL cats from my CSL and going back to standard.
want £400 for them.
linky to the ad for sale:
apart from supersprint they are the best you can buy. car flows better with them , has a nicer noise but I want to go back to OEM.
is it true that Miltek cats are 1" shorter than oem? in which case require modification to fit properly as I read on another forum? Or could be that he has mistaken his for some other brand?
direct replacement for OEM. same size and length. no modifications to the pipes on my car. the cats, mid sections, rear box etc are all the same lengths.
look at the pics in my ad and you can see there are no mods.
Direnza have changed the wording on their website now. I rang up to get a refund.
