Help me out with 03 325i

Took my car to get inspected but didn't pass the New York State emissions they told me that 2 monitors weren't ready the evap and the secondary air system
They told me to drive it and it would reset now I've drove it Like 500 miles already and nothing and also did that extreme drive cycle didn't work I've tried everything to putting a guarantee emissions fluid in and fuel injector cleaning Nothing works also I have a personal scanner so I've been checking and it's the same finally i unplugged the batterie for 20 mins and check the with scanner all the monitors were incomplete i took it for a drive and same 2 are incomplete while the others cleared
Basically my brother told me to clean the air mass sensors but idk my last resort is to take it to the stealers and pay 159.99 for diagnoses but I have no check engine no nothing car rides smooth got some balls to I recently race my buddy in his s4 and smoked him" not the car but whose driving it" hehe but anyways anyone know something I don't any thing would help I have a ten day extension but I want to be done with it

It's strange that those systems won't pass the readiness test. If you don't have any error codes stored in the ECU then it probably isn't related to any sensors. It sounds like a software problem to me, but what do I know.
Try posting your question in the E46 forum on this site. There's a lot of knowledgable peeps that frequent it.
