ALL US Destined BMW's are 50 state legal with respect to emission. So its fair to say that EVERY BMW legally here in the US have to meet C.A.R.B. requirement. Its doesn't matter what state the car is purchased from.

Considering doing so gives few gains and is a federal CRIMINAL offense. Not really.
