Smog in AZ with test pipes and bpm tune

Have to smog my car but no o2 sensors and bpm tune to ignore them. Anyone know if this will cause a problem? Will they impound my car or something?

Ps, I won't contact bpm because he refused to refund me a phone purchase I didn't want.

You'll need to put on stock cats and load the stock tune. This is why I don't run test pipes or an aftermarket x-pipe as switching every year is a pain in the ass for ~20HP.

OK - I got my "smog" results here... all they do is check your ODB that sensors haven't failed. So since the BPM tune suppresses the O2 sensors failure (for not existing) their equipment passes..

There is no visual or sniff test here. Yippee!!!

Not the same as CA, but ya apparently, it's just a ODB check though.

AZ is actually not car friendly. My insurance went up $200 and car registration is a 2.9% tax on the 60% of the vehicle base price, minus an annual 16% reduction. So a nice shiny new BMW will run you like $1200 registration.

OUCH

I'm now thinking of dumping my M3 for a cheaper vehicle that doesn't mind stop lights and straight roads and rock chips.
