It's time to replace the exhaust system on my 97 9000 Aero. I'm probably looking at replacing the entire unit, possibly including the catalytic. I get that occasional sulfurous smell which can be indicative of a failing converter but am not sure if that smell is a sure fire indication that the converter itself is bad or if it might simply mean that some extra fuel was passed through unburned. So that's one question - what is the best test to check the status of the catalytic converter? The second question I have is if all you folks who know more than me about these cars (and believe me it doesn't take much) recommend an exhaust system other than that sold by the local Saab dealer. Thanks.
