Free State Inspection?

I'm due for a state inspection on my 08 335i. I assumed state inspection would be free under the maintenance program...is this not the case? I called a BMW dealership in Houston and they said it wasnt free. Is this true? Houston has emissions testing so I dont know if that effects anything.

Well, the state inspection for Harris county doesn't fall under BMW's recommended maintenance, so I guess we're out of luck there. I believe it is $29.00 any place you take it to. I got mine done at Momentum for the same price.

I live in Brazoria county and the same inspection applies here at the same price. So, I just got it done at Momentum while I was in Houston.

Yes take it to the dealer, at least they won't rip your wiper blades so you have to buy new one from them to pass. That was my experience at a local place in Katy with my X3.
