2006 BMW 330I computer dont get ready for emissions

I have a 2006 E90 330I and the computer is never ready for the emissions test. I drove the car for over 500 miles and still have 3 balls blinking on my OBD scanner.

The car runs perfect but I need to pass emissions in order to drive it.

How can I fix the issues???

Thank you in advance for your help

Did you drive the 500 miles on street? Meaning stopping at stop signs and stop lights? If so, that will be your problem... You need to drive your car in the highway... Make sure that you hit 65 mph for a couple of miles... I would take it for a drive in the highway at night... So you can step on it for a couple miles and ease off on the pedal for a mile the go at it again stepping on it! I've heard it can take up 100 highway miles for it to start recording all the emissions sensors...

Some of the readiness codes are automatic failures but not all. My Toyota had to be driven over 1200 km to set all of them but so long as the majority were green, it was always passed.
