Under my hood where a bunch of engine info is given, it states:
The place where I take my car didn't think it was either since it was a 1995. But I told them to hook it up to the machine, and they were able to access everything. All the info, nothing missing. I am pretty darn sure it's OBDII compliant. In fact, I know.
Oh and to answer your question:
"Where can I run a VIN report so I can give to California's Air Resources Board (aka, CARB)? "
Any Mercedes dealer can do it for you. I don't know about the engine though, I suppose you just give them the engine serial number or whatever?
Oh ok, i get it... you can just run the car that the C36 came out of!
