First off I am in the military and I have an assignment to germany and I'm in NC and my car is also registered here in nc.
My 01 ta has h/c/lt's and for now a cat'd y pipe. I want to take that cat'd y pipe off and put a ory on. Now when its time to ship my car over to germany will it fail inspection when I take it down to have it shipped or will they even bother checking for them? I'm being told they (cat's) aren't needed or should I say required in germany. Can anyone help me out with this. I just want to make sure when its time to ship it off, that I wont' have any problems. Thanks.

when you got to ship it, they wont give a shit wtf the car has or does not have on it, but i would just leave the cat and regular y pipe on there then change them out after your inspection, trust me man its kinda apin int he ass to get america cars to pass, i personally know all the inspectiors at both bases and they are dicks, they will check all kinds of stupdi shit, but you will need your cats, the ory wont make you fail but why push your luck? and make sure that your ebrake works really good cause thats what makes most cars fail, my mom was the person that shipped all the cars to and from germany so if you got any questions let me know and are you going to ramstein or spang?

There isnt a soul on spang that cares about cats or the ebrake. had mine inspected again(both vehicles) and they didnt say a word about the lack of cats, and didnt touch my ebrakes.
