                          EXECUTIVE ORDER D—176—8
                 Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                            of the Vehicle Code

                               DINAN ENGINEERING
                               Performance Chips

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

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Sections 39515 and
39516 of the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—45—9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED:    That the installation of the Performance Chips
manufactured by the Dinan Engineering of 150—E South Whisman Road, Mountain
View, California 94041 has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of
required motor vehicle pollution control devices and, therefore, is exempt
from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for installation
on 1984 to 1995 BMW vehicles powered by a 1.8 to 5.0 liter fuel injected
gasoline engines as listed in Exhibit A.
This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions of
the Performance Chips will not recommend tuning the vehicle to
specifications different from those submitted by the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the device, as
exempted by the ARB, that adversely affect the performance of a vehicle‘s
pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of this device using an identification other than that shown in
this Executive Order or marketing of this device for an application other
than those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior
approval is obtained from the ARB.
This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the
use of this device may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by
the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on an evaluation of emissions impact
if emissions tests were conducted in accordance with Cold—Start CVS—75
Federal Test Procedure. However, the Air Resources Board finds that
reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Performance Chips may
adversely affect emissions of motor vehicles when operating under
conditions outside the parameters of the previously prescribed test
procedures. Accordingly, the Air Resources Board reserves the right to
conduct additional emission tests, in the future, as such tests are
developed, that will more adequately measure emissions from all cycle
phases. If such test results demonstrate that the Performance Chips
adversely affect emissions during off—cycle conditions (defined as those
conditions which are beyond the parameters of the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal


DINAN ENGINEERING                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—176—8
    .                                                (Page 2 of 2)



Test Procedure}, this Executive Order shall be effectively rescinded as of
the date the test results are validated.       Further, if such test results or
other evidence provides the Air Resources Board with reason to suspect that
the Performance Chips will affect the durability of the emission control,
Dinan Engingering shall be required to submit durability data to show that
the durability of the vehicle emissfons control system is not,        in fact,
affected and/or that the add—on or modified part demonstrates adequate
durability.

In addition to the foregoing, 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 THE DINAN ENGINEERING‘S PERFORMANCE CHIPS.

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.

Section 17500 of the Business and ProFessioļ¬s Code makes untrue or
misleading advertising unlawful, and Section 17534 makes violation
punishable as a misdemeanor.

Section 43644 of the Health and Safety Code provides as follows:

        "43644,   [(a)   No person shall install, sell, offer for sale, or
        advertise, or, except in an application to the state board for
        certification of a device, represent, any device as a motor vehicle
        pollution control device for use on any used motor vehicle unless that
        device has been certified by the state board. No person shall sel1,
        offer for sale, advertise, or represent any motor vehicle pollution
        control device as a certified device which, in fact, is not a certified
        device.   Any violation of this subdivision is a misdemeanor."

Any apparent violation of the conditions of this Executive Order may result
in its rescission or submission to the Attorney General of California for
such action as he deems advisable.

Executive Order D—176—5, dated October 28, 1992, is superseded and of no
further force and effect.
