Fits Vauxhall Astra MK5 1.8 Genuine BM Cats Approved Exhaust Catalytic Converter. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused. If your vehicle is registered before 1st March 2001, then you DO NOT need to fit a Type Approved Catalytic Converter. However, if your vehicle is registered after 1st March 2001, then YOU MUST fit a Type Approved Catalytic Converter in accordance with UK Legislation Laws. In 1993, it became a legal requirement in the UK for vehicles to be fitted with Catalytic Converters as part of the Euro Emissions standards to improve air quality.
Today, BM Catalysts manufacture Europes largest range of Catalytic Converters. A Catalytic Converter (Cat) is an emissions control device that reduces the level of harmful exhaust gasses that enter the atmosphere. It works by converting exhaust emissions into less harmful ones when the gasses pass through it, triggering a chemical reaction. EU Emissions Standards are subject to amendment from time to time, for example, vehicles made after March 2001 (Y-reg onward) are now required under UK law to be fitted with type-approved, homologated Cats.
Anything from Euro 3 onward are classed as H-parts and can be identified in the BM range by a H suffix. BM Catalysts work tirelessly to keep up-to-date with these standards and develop their parts to meet the ever-changing needs of both the industry and their customers.
