    i have a 02 ws6 i'm the 2nd owner and i got the same letter.I have a p0420 code--bad cat,so i called the dealer,he told me he has to put it on the machine for $80 to see if i don't have any other problems 1st. then he has to fix anything wrong at my cost,then when it runs 100% if there is still a bad cat code then he would fix it.I think it's a bunch of crap

    Hmmm...I still have not received a letter and I am the original owner. Maybe it is due to our wonder US Postal Service.
