Help to pass inspection in NY

Hello guys I bought my car a month ago and when I bring my car to get my car inspect I failed with 3 not completed and for some reason I can't get it to pass.

1.Catalyst monitoring
2.Secondary air system monitoring
3.Oxygen sensor monitoring

I was told to drive 65 miles on high way straight for 15 mins on a steady speed which I did but not steady its really impossible to drive steady even without traffic as when it is downhill or uphill on highway the mph go up and down easily. Does any have a dyno or something where I can run my car on there ? Or anybody know how to get the car inspected ? I try taking my car to a lot of auto even BMW specialtys and its like a ran around.

I'm located in the new York queens if anybody can recommend me an shop or helps would really appreciate it. My inspection date has expired already.

The days of shop hook ups are unfortunately over in NYC..

This is the formula that help me clear the not ready errors.

I did this at night time when the roads are clear.

1. From a cold start let the car idle for 2:10 ( i did this at an entrance to the highway at like 12 midnight)

2. Get into the right lane and drive between 20-30 mph for 3:15 (steady with no huge jumps between 20-30)

3. speed up slowly and maintain between 50-60 mph for 15 min

4. stop and idle in gear for 5:00

YOU CAN NOT TOUCH THE BRAKE AT ANYTIME DURING THIS PROCEDURE (that's why i did it at midnight)

initially it didn't work but what i did for the next 2 days was repeat steps 1 and 4 and all systems activated and i RAN to get it inspected!!

i don't have an M6 i have a 650 but this is "allegedly" the method in which BMW drive cycles can be activated to ready.

good luck

I had a the check engine on in mine and I passed the inspection. I know a spot in the Bronx where they do it. I got charged $150 but didn't have to worry about going to the dealer and getting **** fixed just to pass an inspection.
