    Hey all, I've got a 2005 330Ci that I've painstakingly fixed up quite a lot. Had a small issue with a vacuum leak that ended up just being a faulty MAF. Replaced it, got rid of P0174 and P0171.

    So I've been trying to pass smog for the past month. I recently got my 02 sensors changed in my 2003 330Ci. I took my car in for smog and they said my monitors were not complete. I hooked up my OBDII reader and found that my EVAP, oxygen sensor, and oxygen sensor heater monitor were all...
