It's BMW that is requesting the car, not CARB (at least directly). I think the car would pass the test, BMW seems to have put a lot of effort to have these cars be as clean as possible. Even after 3 years of driving, the tailpipes are clean. If this testing will validate BMW's design or help improve their future emission systems, I wouldn't mind helping them at all.
