Urgh...

I've had a rattle for a while now, not knowing what it is.

I realised yesterday that I have exhaust gasses escaping from the front of the cat at high pressure, causing the horrible sound.

I take it that means my cat is FUBAR? How much? :(
Or how much for a full exhaust, after a quick look its got pretty rust all over it :(

Also, I took a look under the car after a long motorway drive, and noticed a fast drip of fluid - coming from just to the left of the cat.
This one has me confused as it seems too far back in the car to be coolant. I guess it could be brake fluid (possibly the cause of the intermittent ABS light) however after a little sniff and taste, it does seem to just be water... So i'm very confused.

Did you have your air-con on?
Probably the air-con heat exchanger draining down the condensation.
Alongside the cat sounds about the right place for the drain hose.
I noticed my Gen3 left a puddle yesterday, roughly in line with the door mirrors.

Hope this helps more than it confuses.
