Smog Test (CA) 07' N52 engine

I need to have my 07' x3 smogged here in California. THis is my 1st time having a all time AWD smogged. Do X3's with N52(B30) engines have the same possible smog issues as the N54 does? TIA

the turbo laggard 54.....direct injection and turbo problems are two of the major differences......some 54 units make very pronounced clatter ......they have updated its software to alleviate some problems......it will get going though !.....they are both mostly very good units.....should not be any special issues for smog test on either if they have been looked after


the 52 .....loads of differences to the 54
