    That sounds like a good solution. Now you can enjoy it for 1.5 years before deciding to sell or keep it.

      So, in 6mo you'll sell it to someone not in CA.

I still have to take it in and get another failed smog but once thats done I can take all my paperwork to the Referee and I will get the pass. Good news because I can finally register the car in my name, get my tags and kick the can down "2 years" which technically is only 1.5 years away at this point... so thats good at least
        Duuuuuuuude. Register in a no smog county.

          Once the cars in my name ;)

          Still holding on to some hope that I can get this done without the exception, but also preparing my plan of attack for this last step. First was to again confirm where the problem seems to lie. I couldnt sleep last night (pre-daddy prep?) so I decided to leave at 3am to go for another Drive Cycle, but with the OBD Fusion app fired up. Here are the screenshots of the drive in the 20-30mph phase, the 40-60 phase and the after while sitting at idle. Also added one while driving home at a quicker pace. All shows the same issue with that one o2 sensor reading

























          That single o2 sensor seems to be the troublemaker. As much as I hate to believe it, the new o2 could be a bust. Im going to swap the post-cat o2's and see if the troublemaker moves to the other bank. If it does, I will have the shop replace that one o2, do another official drive cycle on their Dyno followed by a smog. Either way, Im done after that. Hopefully we are actually able to solve the problem, but if not Ive dumped enough money and failed the two smogs that I need to before I can get the exception.

            My immediate thought is it's related to the battery situation you had a couple pages back. How many miles have you drive since then?

            Happened to me when I went to smog my 2003 Z4, which was also a M54B30 with manual trans. ECU got reset and it passed smog minus some of the sensors "not ready". They gave me the car back and said go drive 150 miles and come back for the retest and your certificate. Ended up taking closer to 250 miles for it finally to be "ready", but then immediately passed. IMO, jsut drive it some more.

            Also, there wasnt any amount of special driving I had to do, as you're seeming to reference. I basically did it all in two 125 mile freeway trips and a small amount of city driving.

              I’ve driven over 1200 miles since the day1 surprise. At this point I’m leaning more towards a faulty o2, as I feel like most new parts are basically hit & miss.

                O2 sensors are also somewhat vulnerable to impact damage, so of all the car parts out there to suffer invisible shipping damage they'd be high on the list.

                  +1 or it could be a cheap knock-off part, etc.

                    Yea the DAPO claims that all 4 were Bosch units, but no paperwork to back it up. Hopeful this will get me over the hurdle
