As with anything else, your passing emissions or not depends on the inspection station. I am amazed at how I failed an inspection once because I had a small taillight crack, yet I see junkers with no bumpers and red tape for taillights tooling along with fresh inspection stickers on the cracked windshield...

I suspect that with the new emission laws, some of the less scrupulous places won't be able to continue the practice. Newer, more expensive equipment is necessary to be in conformance with the new inspection station requirements.

At least the Beetle fell under the 25-year old clause, so it doesn't require an emissions test to pass...thank God...those dual carbs throw the sniffer off the scale!!!
