Has anyone actually replaced the cat section of the exhaust?

Hi folks,
Some of you made some great recommendations about replacement exhausts for my Defender 50th.

However on calling Rimmer Bros, they told me NO aftermarket cat Y-peice sections fit the 50th because they all foul the gearbox cross member (something like that anyway). They said the ONLY one that fits is the OEM LR pipe, which costs 1800 plus VAT.

Have any of you replaced your catalytic converter section of your exhaust, and if so what product did you use?
Thanks
rob

Salesmanship, this part fits fine and dandy it's exactly the same as the LR part.

So when I called Rimmer Bros and they said it wouldn't fit the Defender50th on account of it being an Automatic, that's salesmanship? I'm baffled.
