        Did the car sit before it got smogged?

        Looks like the cat just wasn't hot enough.

          I drove like a maniac before I got there to make sure the cat was hot, but the car was waiting for maybe an hour max. When it was my turn I did drive the car around a little, but it was low speeds, and only a few minutes.

          Im wondering if that alone is the problem. He did the 15 mph test first and it was clean... I dunno

                You need a cat. Same thing on my car. Put on a magnaflow cat and all was well. Be aware though, magnaflow lists a legit s50 cat as two single pipe cats. So if you're single exhaust it could get complicated. My "m50" is using a dual in-dual out cat legal for a 95 325i.

                  My exhaust setup is M50 manifolds, S50 downpipe then M20B25 dual exhaust. If I get the magnaflow, can I just hack it into my setup?

                  This is the one that came up?

                      It's a Turner motorsports chip. The chip is meant for a S50 with the 21.5 pink injectors. I chose this one because it was the closest off-the-shelf tune that was closest to my setup.

                      I am sure eventually I'll need a custom tune, but for now I'm trying to get this part done

                          Put in a Canadian cluster. Then the 25mph test turns into a 15mph test, the 15 a 9, and the car passes, unusually clean, every time.

                          :)

                            That would actually be interesting... using some sort of speedo modifier to accomplish this - if they don't actually measure wheel speed (which I imagine they do)

                              Im just trying to figure out if a different tune will solve the problem, or new cats. A new custom tune will happen no matter what, but THAT tune is for performance, not emissions.

                              No, it is on a wheel dyno so wheel speed is measured, no funny games with the BMW speedo
