                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—176—26
                       Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                    Of the Vehicle Code

                                  Dinan Engineering, Inc.
                                   Performance Software



Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156 of the
Vehicle Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section 39516
of the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—02—003;                                    '

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED; That the installation of the Performance Software,
manufactured and marketed by Dinan Engineering, Inc., 865 Jarvis Drive, Morgan Hill,
CA 95037, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle
pollution control system and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156
of the Vehicle Code for installation on 2000 through 2003 model year BMW vehicles as
described in the Exhibit A, excluding 2003 model year 325 and 330 models with the
following engine test groups, 3BMXVO3.0UL2 and 3BMXVO2.5M56.

The Performance Software is designed to enhance vehicle performance by altering air—
fuel ratio, ignition timing, camshaft timing, engine rpm limit, governed vehicle speed, and
throttle response (vehicles with electronically controlled throttles) under high engine load
and speed conditions. Vehicles can only be programmed using Dinan‘s Mobile Instant
Power Programmer (MIPP) at authorized Dinan dealers. The MIPP senses the vehicle
specification and selects the correct program for that vehicle.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the
Performance Software will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different
from those of the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Performance Software advertised, offered for
sale, sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with the transfer to
an ultimate purchaser.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Performance Software, as
exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the
vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the Performance Software using any identification other than that shown in
this Executive Order or marketing of the Performance Software for an application other
than those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is
obtained from the Air Resources Board. Exemption of the system shall not be construed


as exemption to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of the kit as an individual
device.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect that the use of the
Performance Software may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the
vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on prior evaluation which determined that Dinan
Engineering, Inc.‘s Performance Software does not cause an adverse effect on
emissions of selected passenger cars (D—176—20), nor does it affect the vehicles‘ ability
to perform On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) system monitoring. The same effect on
emissions and OBD II system monitoring is expected on the vehicles listed in this
Executive Order.

The ARB reserves the right in the future to review this Executive Order and the
exemption provided herein to assure that the exempted add—on or modified part
continues to meet the standards and procedures of Title 13, California Code of
Regulations, Section 2222, et seq.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION,
ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE
AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING
ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF DINAN
ENGINEERING‘S PERFORMANCE SOFTWARE.                 '

No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board", may be made
with respect to the action taken herein in any advertising of other oral or written
communication.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this order.
The order may be revoked only after a ten—day written notice of intention to revoke the
order, in which period the holder of the order may request in writing a hearing to contest
the proposed revocation. If a hearing is requested, it shall be held within ten days of
receipt of the request and the order may not be revoked until a determination is made,
after the hearing, that grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El.Monte, California, this _/ Zfl‘t day of May 2004.
