Glowing cat

My car is beginning to smell pretty bad after romping so I looked underneath last night after a "spirited" drive and I noticed the cat glowing through the heat shield. I've already read up on the cause, warranty replacement etc but I was just wondering if it would be worth it to get a higher flowing cat. I know that they are mostly universal which kind of sketches me out. Would it be worth it or should I just see if they will replace it under warranty?

Cheers

go for warranty first.
then you can sell the stock cat and get a highflow.

Click the image to open in full size.

If its under warranty and you are fine with the stock cat, go get the free one. If you want somethign that flows a little better, buy a decent high flow cat. Honestly I'd go get the free new one either way, then you have a new one in the garage incase you want to go back to stock later.

Or you could go the full distance and get the max power gains from a catless midpipe. Keep the new stock cat for emissions tests.
