I have a 99 E430 and my front driver side catylitic converter needs to be changed. the muffler shop told me that they cant cut it out because it will interfear with my oxygen sensor. They allso told me that that converter is so small and at such a strange angle that its a real chore to swap out. they did find a 6.5'' converter that they said they can make work but is going tocost me $550
Has anyone made this repair to their car?,any advice or suggestions??

Go somewhere else. There is more then one overpriced place to get this done at. Make sure to figure in a trade in value for your old cat. They are worth big bucks because of the metals inside of them.
