                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—176—35

                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                   of the California Vehicle Code

                                  Dinan Engineering, Inc.
                         Dinan Engineering 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 Dinan Engineering
Performance Software, produced and marketed by Dinan Engineering, Inc. of 865 Jarvis
Drive, Morgan Hill, California 95037, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of
the applicable vehicle pollution control systems and, therefore, is exempt from the
prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for 2002 to 2006 model year Mini
Cooper S and selected 2000 to 2008 model year BMW vehicles listed in Exhibit A.

The Performance Software is an ECU upgrade only. Installation is conducted using a
laptop computer and Dinan Engineering data files. The new program is uploaded through
the vehicle‘s OBD II port. There are no user adjustments, installation is only conducted
by an authorized Dinan Dealer.

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

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Dinan Engineering
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.

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

Marketing of the Dinan Engineering Performance Software using any identification other
than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the Dinan Engineering
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.

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


                                                «2.

This Executive Order is granted based on emission test results in the modified
configuration using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure, Supplemental
Federal Test Procedure (USO6), and an examination of the On—Board Diagnostic II
(OBD I1I) system. A 2007 model year BMW 335i with a 3.0 liter engine (7BMXVO3.0N54,
LEV II LEV, PC) was used for the evaluation of the Dinan Engineering Performance
Software. Results from emissions testing conducted at Automotive Testing and
Development Services, Inc., located in Ontario, California, are shown below (in grams
per mile with deterioration factors applied):

                                 CVS—75                              USO6
                           NMOG CO NOx                HCHO        NMHC+NOx           CO
Standards, 50k             0.075   34 0.05            0.015         0.14             8.0
Device Test                0.034   0.5 0.02           0.001         0.04             5.9

The emission test results in the modified configuration were all below the applicable
certification standards. Examination of the OBD II system showed the Dinan
Engineering Performance Software does not affect OBD II system operation.

Similar effect on vehicle emissions is expected with the installation of the Dinan
Engineering Performance Software on vehicles listed in this Executive Order.

The Air Resources Board 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, INC.‘S DINAN ENGINEERING 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 or 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       8&'        day of August 2008.
