I don't know if BMW of Fairfax is as stingy, but this to me was ridiculous. I told her they were being extremely nit picky and she wouldn't budge. I took it to the gas station near my house the same day and they passed me without a second thought. Just my experience with this kind of stuff at the dealer.
I always take my car for State inspections at local gas stations. They usually don't care.
