Make sure you look into *why* the cat melted or you'll be out another $274
when it melts again.

The cat on my 760 lasted as long as I owned car (close to 200K miles
in 12 years). 107K doesn't seem that much in terms of cat life.

Shouldn't, with a properly functioning engine a cat should last indefinitly.
The only time they clog is if they're mechanically damaged or the engine
runs rich and overheats them.

I've heard that over time the use of oil additives loaded with zinc can
screw up a cat.
