Need help finding the right SMOG Station in San Jose Area

Hi all as the title says, My car is a 07 e92 335i(Procede,DCI,7' Intercooler,BMW PE) thats due for a smog this year, and I just did the whole process this morning, and after everything was done, I saw him putting pass on all the categories, and started sending to State DMV computer..... and while it was doing that, he open my hood and check my engine.... and as soon as he saw the DCI(the two red cone), he bolted to the computer and pull the plug thus turning off the computer, but then the sending part was already done, and I saw that I passed...... but he said:" I cant pass you cause you have illegal parts in your car....." and I'm like.....: "but it already passed right, you know that...." and he said: it's okay, I dont charge you, please go..." so I was kind of upset and went to DMV website and checked status of my registration, when I entered my information, It showed that I have passed the smog and gives me the next step to pay for it, but as for two days ago when i check it, it was saying that I need to have the smog done in order to pay and get my sticker, so what do I do now??? Did I just got a free pass smog??? and If I pay for it and got the sticker later, can they notify DMV to revoke my smog?? and if not then anyone in bay area know where can I find a smog station thats easy on the DCI..... please help~~

I would just pay it. Sounds like it was too late for the smog guy to change it.

Why not just put the stock air box back in? It's a quick 15 minute job...

Now that all the '07s are hitting smog a lot of us probably need the "right" smog place

Heh, it's much easier in Georgia. As long as there are no OBD codes in the computer and it passes readiness status, has catalytic converters and the CEL works, the car passes the inspection. Nothing else matters.
