True, unless you buy the car out of state. Then you need to bring a smog certificate to DMV or AAA to title and register your car. You don't have to get it smogged again until the 6th year.

One other thing is that you must actually have a smog station smog test the car prior to registering it if you buy out of state. Again a local dealer could do it but there is a catch. The current pcm...

I have Carobotech 1521s on the Z and Powerstops on my ATS-V. No reason other than I didn't want to go Chinese on a $110,000 car but didn't mind on a $71,000 car.

Poor man's racing shoes=wrestling shoes. 40% of the price and just as good for driving, just not made out of nomex. Great thin flexible soles which is the key.
