Exclamation 2008 535 - cat less down pipes how does this work?

Hey I'm new to this my cat converter went and so did my water pump . I replaced the cat for about $1200 at BMW . How does the cat less pipes work ? Would it had been cheaper going that route if it were compatible? Where can I get a decent water pump at ?

You're gonna wanna change out your thermostat as well being that it was most likely stuck causing your water pump to go out... Use oem bmw parts only. Guessing you're in luck though being that it's a much easier job than on the xi models. I had to take mine to my indy after reading horror stories of people diy'in their xi's.
