Smog Check – Get Test Results Before You Buy
Thursday, September 2nd, 2010
We call it “BMW Fever”. First glance and your eyes glaze over. It’s when all rationality and sense fly out the window when you see the “perfect” BMW. You are overcome with an emotional connection that totally defies logic and then you hand over your hard earned money to anyone who says to you, “No problem. Of course, this BMW will pass the smog check, just hand me the cash and I’ll hand you the pink slip”.
Seriously, buyer beware. In California, the SELLER is responsible for the BMW or MINI passing the Smog Test. The test is valid, (to you for registration) if they sell it to you within 90 days of passing.
