    Those do look stock to someone who is not overly familiar with our cars, so they could pass, it's just whether or not you want to take the risk.

    +1 with John. It would be a pain if they sent to you to the state ref over the intake. Umm welcome to California

    I still need to remove my CSL intake from the Z4MC and swap it back to the stock hardware and ecu flash. Also I will need to apply for a moving permit with the DMV since its past due on the smog check [registration is paid in full].

    I'm going to need to expedite my California registration and have it all done next month. My Ontario plates expire end of October and I don't want to pay $120 to renew for another year, just to only use it for 2-3 more months

    I have the bmwp intake and exhaust. Exhaust will pass no probably because it doesn't affect emissions. I've passed with the intake many times - no questions asked. My plan if they ask is to tell them 1) it's a factory option - because it is and/or 2) it's part of the performance package. It's in BMW's catalog

    +1 to Dhillon Motorsports. Went there immediately after going to SJC to import my car, since it's only a 10 min drive away. No lineup, passed with flying colours and was out of there within a half hour or so.
