    I went by my mechanic for an oil change and said that I was due for a Level II inspection. He told me $500 for everything. I did not have that on me at the time so I just went for the oil change. Any thoughts on the Price or reference to a place in South Florida....Thanks for the help guys

    My inspection light just went negative( - 200 miles )but I basically got my 330ci inspected and worked on from a mechanic shop but not the bmw dealership. Are bmw dealerships the only people who can remove it? And how much will i be paying?
