"Emission standards for new vehicles are set by Australian Design Rules (ADR) under the Motor Vehicle Standards Act.

These initiatives have contributed to a reduction in lead levels and other pollutants in our air."
The E92's have rear cats also i believe, so technically there still are anti polluntant devices fitted.

Unsure if anyone has ever tried to get emissions tested on a N54 sans front cats, but i highly doubt they would pass. A few mates (JDM GTR's WRX's etc) have been to the pits for emissions testing and they failed with the oem ecu and oem exhaust. They had to resort to stuffing the exhaust with packing material to pass on Round 2 of testing!

Yeah they have secondary cats but I doubt they'd be sufficient to pass the emissions test. Only one way to find out
