Well...I can't complain, since I'll be trailering my car anyways. I'm pretty sure there will be ways to get around this. I would just swap out the stock ecu for a standalone, and swap it back when I need to smog.

From what I was saying before it's time to go after "off road" and non-car poluters. RR diesels, mining and construction equip etc. On road heavy trucks and buses are being forced to clean up soon so why not others. Cars can't be made much cleaner besides getting them to burn less fuel.
every 2 years.. now shut up before you give them ideas. they're watching us..
Do these people know new car sales are growing rapidly in China, which has NO pollution controls for new cars? OBDII cars are so clean it's ridiculous... making them just that tiny bit cleaner when millions of cars are being sold as new with no pollution controls at all across the pond is rather pointless. We only have one earth here people.

Autocrossing for a day is the best $25 you can spend
Theres already tons of cars out there that have "black boxes". They record information like hard braking and what not and then they are erased every few seconds. Unless you are in an accident. Then the info is stored and your insurance company/police have to go through all sorts of shit to get the info out.
OBD3 aint about clean air, more about big brother if you ask me. And Cali is the worst state for all of this. Man im outa here in about a year. I cant take Northern Mexcio much longer :bh .
Also OBD3 might be apart of what there talking about now, how they want to track us and make us pay tax for every mile we drive. I guess the UK is going through with it, and if it happens there its bound to come over here.

Sounds like we are all just going to move to states with no emissions so we can run straight pipes and some rich ass AFRs just to make up for all the smog that the rest of the country is missing out on. i.e. Oklahoma; Flordia; etc.
