    Dinan CA Smog legal?

    I presume so, since it can be dealer installed, but does anyone know for sure if the dinan tune is 100% smog legal in CA?

    A dealer will install the parts for you even if they are not CARB certified usually. Dinan is no longer BMW approved or supported, those are individual dealer agreements just trying to make money on labor.

    It is not smog legal in California (taken from the N54 tune page):

    Yes, but don't worry about CARB. Let them spoil the fun for everyone else, enjoy your car.
