So not really sure where to put this thread, but I’m curious to know if there’s a market for OEM LDP’s? I upgraded to AMS LDP’s and was looking to sell mine. Anyone have a rough price for a pair? Or if there’s even buyers for them?

Since my Q has full catted DPs, I sold all four cats for $800 + shipping to a forum member a couple of years ago.

There are some on ebay now for $350 each (upper and lower, so $350 x 4). Seems high but it appears there is a market. Mine are in my attic. :)

Some places online will buy them for a pretty penny. Was another thread on it. If you can pull the ID off them they can give you a quote before shipping. but I believe it should be in the tune of about 200$ each ldp / $400 pair. Not sure there is much of a used market people looking to go back to oem but places want the cats.

there's between 3-7 grams of platinum in the typical converter. right now, platinum is currently $31.57 per gram

there's between 2-7 grams of palladium, current prices are $70.71 per gram

there's 1-2 grams of rhodium in a cat, prices are $483.87 per gram.

using the absolute minimum values, that would make a cat worth around $700. figure a 50% price drop because you still need to process the cat and do all the things to get the metals and you end up around $350 actual value. that price should fluctuate based on the size of the cat.

so no, dont sell your cats for $90 each.

A recycler in the know will only give you $100-$125 per lower downpipes. The money maker are the upper cats as there is more materials in those.
