I am only repeating what I think I read here some time back. I think what I saw is that the car needs to have 5,000 miles on it to get into CA as a non-CA used car.

That's how people are getting MB CDI diesels into non-diesel states.

She will need to smog the thing on initial registration, to get the California Plates on it.

So long as it has 7,500 miles on it at least, it should breeze right through as legal to import.

After it has the California plates on it, as a near new car, it would enjoy the balance of the 4 year exemption from the biannual smog tests. Los Angeles (LALA land) is part of the "enhanced" area, ie, with the strictest smog requirements.

No lighting or safety tests for cars in California, whatsoever..

More from the state website on the smog tests:

The mileage requirement is 7,500 miles to bring them in.

I brought in a 49 state car that way that I purchased as a rental return from a New Car Dealer in Tucson, Arizona, once. It was 10 or 11 months from new.

It was the best car I ever owned. The highest mpg one, too.

I had a conversation with my buddy who is a Headache(Hyundai) Tech.


He said it should be 50 state legal. They have all the same smog equipement no matter where you are on those things.

California residents are restricted to cars with at least 7500 miles if not 50-state certified. If she's moving to California from another state, she can bring in a brand new car. Tell her to sell the Hundai, bring in a new E320 CDI, sell the CDI for a nice profit once registered, then buy two Hyundais.

Come to think of it, she can bring in a new CDI without selling the Hyundai. I don't think there's a limit on how many cars you can bring into the state.

How is "new car" defined? If you are bringing in a new car from the east coast, it could have 1500 miles on it by the time you get to CA. Could it be based on purchase date?

Once it's registered to an end user and title has been issued, it is not a new car any more.

And any new car on the lot of a new car dealer with over 200-300 miles of "test drives" on it is going to be a pretty rough sell as a "new" car for most customers, unless it is discounted to hell and gone.

I think that NY and CA have identical emission standards for passenger cars. The car may already be CA compliant.
