    "Evasive Registration Scofflaws"

    When I think of things I'd like to be doing with my limited time on this earth, helping the CHP out is definitely high on my list...

    I've been to San Diego, LA, and Silicon Valley, and still wonder why anyone lives in CA. Tattle tale hotline for car registrations, and people actually use it? What on earth could make dealing with the endless CA BS worth it (except for constantly doing hot actresses/models)?

    Today, I went to the CHP and the officer told me I have to the laboratory test because the vehicle is from Grey market and I called the company and they charge me from $4500 minimum and up to $6500 to get it done...my touring is 1991 325 M20. can anyone help here? any option do i have?

    You read this shit, then laugh your ass off at how many people scoff at the prices that are being asked for these basically stock tourings.

    Wow, talk about a difference comparing WA to CA

    I'm 8K into mine to drive it in WA

    I don't mean to sound heartless, but you should have read the regulations for California. They explain that laboratory testing is required, unlike all other states.

    There are two labs I know of G&K and some other lab in the Bay Area. It costs them a lot of money to remain certified, hence the high cost.

    There is no other way around it, either pay for the lab testing, or sell the car. Getting a touring in California is an expensive ordeal.

    On the plus side, once the car is registered in California and passes lab testing, it is smog'able by any subsequent owner. Having a touring registered in California should let you charge a premium if you decide to sell.
