    Where can I source a Catalytic converter for a Toyota Prius (regs between 2009-2015). A mechanic friend is getting many requests for CAT replacements for Prius's - because in London they get stolen a lot.

    He wants to buy between 5-10 Prius cats to keep up with the current demand he is getting.
    Does anyone have information on where I help him source these? I have already contacted Toyota, I am looking for good quality OEM versions really.

    Has anyone tried ordering cats directly from Japan?

    Here's a japanese source:

    Genuine Toyota 17410-37310 (1741037310) PIPE ASSY, EXHAUST, FRONT for Toyota Prius - Amayama

    You need to start a purchase process with large/pricey items, before you'll see a shipping cost. I've used them a few times for small items, never any problems, nt sales tax or import duty levied (at least on my small purchases).

    Addendum: I did message them once, about the lack of shipping charge on large items. They assured me you do get to see a shipping charge before pushing the final purchase button. Too, they've been very professional, items very well packed. Delivery takes 1~2 weeks.
