Pulled over by BAR today, more then just visual inspections
Tried to do a search for BAR (Bureau Auto Repair) but BAR was too short.
Driving down the road today and came across a check point with a couple officers and some BAR technicians who were spot checking Diesel cars/trucks.
Looked under the hood, looked under the truck (CAT and DPF visual). Connected to the OBDII port. Stuck a probe in the exhaust. Finished with a test on soot levels which involved some sort of white material which was drawn over the exhaust tip. Had me rev it a few times then they removed the piece and measured the amount of discoloration due to soot, I'm guessing.
Guess I was ok, but other then the actual smog checks which they are to begin mailing in January with registration renewals, if this is what we will be facing, were ****ed.
