Smogged the SportsMobile

I had the 6.0 TD smogged today and I must say that it was quickest $65.00 that I have ever spent on a vehicle . Opened the hood shined a flashlight on the engine .
Dropped down on hands and knees and shined the same flashlight on exhaust .
Plugged into ECM started engine let it run for 3 minutes .
Assistant forwarded results to DMV as soon as engine was turned off .
Printed a report for me .
Stuck out his hand and said that will be $65.00
37 minutes from home to home .
I really LOVE my Native State and all of the care shown for our well being .

Similar process here, however they also put it on a dyno and burn a few millimeters off your tires before giving it back.

Yeah, California made it nice and simple, so it's clearly just a revenue source for the state. That's how it starts, and soon enough the inspections/testing will get tougher and tougher until this state is even more resident unfriendly than it is now.

Sounds like a smog check (really more of an emission systems check) in your future.

Naaa we don't do that kind of thing up here in the boonies. Shush, don't tell Sacramento anyone lives up here.

Re: Smogged the SportsMobile

Interestingly enough I have been led to believe from a number of friends and customers that reside north of Chico , Ca are not subject to the same scrutiny as those of us that live here in PARADISE . They are slated for this change in these rulings at a much later date .
