                                            3.


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), boost pressure test, and an examination of the
On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) system. A 2011 model year BMW 5501 with a 4.4 liter
engine (BBMXVO4.4N63, LEV [ ULEV, 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, UL              0.040   1.7  0.05       0.008          0.14               8.0
Device Test                0.019     0.7   0.0%3   0.000           0.08              1.4 _

The emission test results in the modified configuration were all below the applicable
ceitification standards. Examination of the OBD II system showed the Dinan
Engineéering 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 ofTitle 13, California Code of
Regulations, Section 2222, et seq.

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

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
