Nobody's going to tell you on a public forum.

Seriously, there is no sniff test for any vehicle 2000- and up. They just hook up the OBDII computer to your car. As long as you don't have any codes, you should pass. About the DP's, don't ask, don't tell. Nobody's going to see it, unless they go prying.

Seriously. Lol.

I believe there is still sniff test however. My 2008 M3, 2014 M6 and 2012 X5d all had to do a sniffer

That's very odd. Was there a reason? All my 2000+ vehicles just go through the OBD computer. Perhaps it's the county.

No sniff test here in NYC ,we used to have that years ago/with a dyno course but know they just go through the OBDII port ,the computer tells all ,the problem with the sniff test was easy to bypass ,they would pull up a car that passed next to the one that failed and put the sniffer in the passing car during the test

Lots of non-star shops in Chula will do it. Though it depends on what you all have done, if it's just visual stuff then you'll be fine.
