[200q20v] Exhaust system?

My '91 200q20v had been attacked by a cheap muffler shop and has the
driver's side cat replaced with a puny aftermarket converter.  Now the
passenger side catalyst seems to have shattered and makes a really lovely
sound at idle.  It's also something special how the car will run differently
depending on how the bits line up from bump to bump.  Do you guys have any
suggestions (other than the gutless kitty trick)?  Does anyone who has
upgraded to another exhaust system happen to have the factory system sitting
around somewhere?  The lovely folks who did the previous work pretty much
butchered the system with cutting and welding, so even if I wanted to
replace with horrid expensive factory stuff, I'd need some of the pipework.

Thank you in advance,

Subject: [200q20v] F.S>track wheels and tires

Hi all,
I just sold my 91 200 20v and have no need for the track wheels and tires. I
thought I would Post it here b4 I sell on Ebay. 15X7 Borbet Sports(very
light) 13lbs wrapped with Hoosiers A3S03 road race radials. Bought the
package back in Fall 00' and were only on the car one time, May 01'. These
were only used for one Drivers Ed. session 15-20laps on a 2.5 mile track. I
was only able to get in one session b4 my michilin man hose let loose ending
the day early for me.
Tires are 205/50/15 and the wheels are 15X7, bolt pattern 5X112. Will fit
I will separate the wheels and tires but would prefer to sell as a package.

Asking $650 for wheels and tires together

$400 for tires alone
$300 for wheels

Paid  over $1000 last Oct for the package + shipping

Oh, yeah. I remember those. My wife's '84 4k LTD (80 to you) had 'em. 4x100
bolt pattern. They would be a fun wheel for a VW GTI

No worse to clean than the stock BBS mesh on the 200Q-20V.

Subject: [200q20v] Water drip on passenger foot

I know that this subject has been brought up before, so I apologize in
advance. I've tried doing a search of the archives, but my explorer gpfs
everytime I try to search audifans.

After I've had the AC on in my car for a while, when I turn a corner, out of
the center vents comes the sound of sizzling water like being poured on a
hot pan. Then yesterday afternoon when I turned off the AC, after hearing
the sound, my wife mentioned that water was dripping on her feet on the
passenger side. Any suggestions or advice as to what this is?
