Bump. Whats the deal with going catless in NY and inspections? I just got my M3 and wanted to get the challenge Race pipe. Its catless with resonators. Will this fail inspection?

The DMV system (plug-in) will fail you if you have two stored codes. This has nothing to do with your CEL being off. One stored code and you will pass. Please note, even with a tune you will always have at least one stored code. Most tunes (that remove the CEL) will still store 2 codes... which is an automatic fail. Nothing the shop can do, no sticker will be issued by the DMV system.

I have the ESS tune (SC+catless+cold-start intact), and it stored only one fault code and let me pass.

Hope that helps. So now I can be street legal when I drive on the track (only).
Right. I was going to go with the Vishnu tune and Challenge Race x pipe but for the track only of course.

Please PM me with thoughts on my above config.
