BUT.. to be 50 state "compliant" we must ALL wait for their Government Enviro CZARS to approve the unchanged emisions/drivetrain from last year... I suspect a "payment" is due in the form of exorbitant "FEES" is in order from BMW to the Government extortionists...I mean Agency out there.

The problem with California is the people. I am not one of "them" even though I call California home.
