Failed Emissions

I also have a '88 260e that failed emissions for the previous owner. He ended up having the cat repacked. Apparently that is possible with these cars. I have also learned that worn valve guides and valve stem seals cause oil to enter and damage the cat which could be the cause of your problem. My car passed after the cat was repacked.
