I tried posting them on ebay and my post was removed. they have 35k on them and are off a 2007 e92.

    Retail for OEM BMW parts is somewhat irrelevant when so much of the aftermarket on this platform gets downpipes.

    I'd say wait and see what someone who sold them tells you. This isn't going to be near $900 total let alone each.

    I've seen them go for $150.00 to 300.00 depending on how badly someone needs them.

    KEEP THEM! If the car ever needs to go in for service OR you decide to sell one day, you're going to be paying out of the ass for replacement DPs. I've parted out all the other OEM bits on my car (intake box, charge pipe, dv's and FMIC), but the DPs I'll always keep just in case

    You can post, you need 5 to link images which I guess is the issue.

    If you are dead set on getting rid of them and $200 is all you want then just look up a local metal recycling plant/yard. Most of those places pay pretty good for cat material because they're made of rare and expensive metals(hence the high MSRP.)

    Recyling prices are usually around 20-40 per cat depending on the size. The resale value of used cats is low because there is no demand unless somebody trashed or sold theirs and realizes they need a set and spends the cash for em. Which you may find yourself doing one day. Good luck.

    If you are dead set on selling them, I've seen them sold for $100 each locally to any place that buys metal. I still don't think that's worth it unless you totaled your car and just happen to sit on some old OEM downpipes or anything like that.

    yeap. I don't even have my car anymore and I still have my cats. My intention was to use them to make a test pipe. my dp's were custom 3" even the merge to the mids were 3" and was going to weld flanges on the ends of the stock pipes and swap them in and out for inspection.

    Keep the parts. I've kept every single OEM part that I've upgraded in my car. There will be a time when you will need to revert back to stock and you'll be happy you kept your OEM parts.
