there are 8 parameters tested. They hook up their reader to your computer and 7 out of 8 are supposed to be in ready state, so you are allow to have 1 in the not ready state.

yes the fix will let you pass have it installed 2-3 days prior to testing so the car resets its parameters and accepts it.

+1

You need to drive cycle the car for 40-100km after the DP fix is installed.

That's the safe route anyways, but I have seen plenty of guys with Stage 2+ (cattless) go and pass an e-test. We have secondary catts so if you haven't removed those and have your car in good running condition you shouldn't have any problems with passing 7 out of 8. The 8th will be the not ready check for the DP's being missing

I have AR catless DP and BMW PE with DP FIX. I was actually super worried when I had to get it done in about January. I just brought my car over the my mechanic to make sure it was in 'ready' mode, drove straight to CT and it passed!

The smell is quite obvious when standing anywhere near my car.

What about those running COBB STG 2 with catless DPs?

Will that allow me to pass the e-test or will I need the DP fix from BMS still?

You dont need dp fix. What you can get is a tune that disable the cat check light. To pass you cannot have a check engine light and you need to pass 7 out of 8 ready checks.

I didn't know this. So if I go into Tuner Pro and supress the conversion in both banks with "00". After a couple drive cycles all monitors except for cat conv would get the "ready status" and this would be enough to pass??? BTW my car is stock with all emission devices in place and is only raced at sanctioned race tracks in Mexico.

I was able to pass with DPfix but that was a pain to install with the pins that were not compatible.

Did you have all monitors ready or were you just missing the monitor for converters
