anyone had "state inspection" done?

my x5 is due for this. pretty sure they check tires and my tires are at wear bars and need to be replaced but, will the dealer hold your car hostage unless you buy tires from them and install it on the day of the inspection?

i dont wanna do this cuz i already bought winter tires and rims.

thankssss!

In "Norge" what is the state inspection?



It isn't a "BMW mandated inspection", but rather a reminder that you can set if you do, in fact, have a state inspection.

The state safety inspection is not covered under the BMW Maintenance Plan. If the dealer does it "for free", it's out of their own pocket. You can set the date yourself and reset when it's done.

That said, the safety and emissions dates in the Check Control are user-set because it's not something that's part of the BMW vehicle maintenance requirements, but rather a legal requirement that varies from state-to-state and country-to-country. For example, SC has no inspection requirements at all. Virginia has no emissions but has the annual safety inspection ($16). NC has annual emissions (most counties) and safety inspections.

they wont hold your car hostage, you'll just get a pretty "rejected" sticker above your current registration and depending on state a certain amount of days to get it reinspected.

throw the snow tires on soon and go for an inspection, problem solved

OMG

You clearly are not listening or understanding what people are saying.

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

IS THERE A STATE INSPECTION IN YOUR STATE?

Answer those and we can tell you if there is a tire inspection.


Sheesh

You can get your vehicle inspected at any place that has this service. Probably cheaper at a non-BMW shop. The shop you pick can not hold your vehicle. All they do is check, sign and stamp the inspection form that you MUST take to the DMV for registration. If it doesnt pass inspection you don't get your registration. So if the vehicle has any issues, you must fix them and get it inspection for a pass versus a fail, prior to visiting the DMV.
