    I can understand why you'd be worried asking publicly about emissions in CA. Posting the names of shops who might be lenient could potentially get them shut down, and get you in trouble with the state as well. I'd probably be careful about that too. Can't be too careful these days ;)

    Agreed. Wasn't really thinking of talking shop names, just what to do with a modded car to still pass.
    Dam I'm glad I don't have to go through that stuff here in KS.

    Pretty much that^ I heard a shop had gotten caught and was charged 1k-5k per vehicle they had caught them pushing through the system in there investigation. Amongst suspending there smog license and fining the shop on top of the 1k-5k per vehicle.

    Exactly, Josh. I'm not promoting the idea of illegal smogs here, but posting information about shops that might be a little "lax" with their inspections isn't necessarily in the best interests of DSMers. Especially when it's been rumored that the state browses online communities to find those shops and fine them/shut them down. I would say to use discretion, both with publicly discussing shop names and also what you're posting about your own efforts to skirt the system.

    That's the reason I put enough mods to make it still passable at any shop, sleeper....
