Moving to Atlanta, worried about my Akra Evo

Hopefully one of you Atlantans can help me out with the emission requirements. The way I read them is that all 2009 and newer vehicles are exempt from emissions testing. However I infer that all Fulton county (and metro counties) residents are required to have emissions testing. So...will I have to pass an emissions test upon registering my 2011 M3 in Fulton county GA.? Thanks in advance.

I have a 2009 and I had to get the car emmisioned this year. You are good for another year I think? Do you have a full exhaust? No cats? They do a visual for cats here, not a complete test, to see if you have cats. I do have an axle back exhaust on my car and I pass emmisions no problems. Where abouts in Fulton county are you moving to? North Fulton, South Fulton?

The evo removes the primaries and replaces the secondary cats with high flow 200 cel. I'm moving into altlantic station. I have seen a lifetimes worth of exotic rides around mid town in just a couple of weeks.

You have until 2015 before you need an emissions test in metro atlanta. So four years from the cars build date.

You'll be good then. Because all they do here is just do a visual inspection of the cats.

Yup, most likely that is what it is. Whenever you get up here, talk to Nathan at TopSpeed. He'll hook you up.

akra also has a module you can get. make sure you don't get it testing right after clearing CEL - you need to drive around for a bit because they'll know you've just cleared it.
