                            EXECUTIVE ORDER D—353—60        _
               Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156 and 38391
                                 of the Vehicle Code

                              Miller Catalyzer Corporation
                     "Series 60000 Three—way Catalytic Converters"

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38395, and Title 13, California Code of
Regulations (hereafter "CCR") Section 2222(h), authorize the California Air Resources
Board and its Executive Officer to exempt new aftermarket catalytic converters from the
prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 and 38391.

WHEREAS, Miller Catalyzer Corporation of 3295 Depot Road, Hayward, California
94545, has applied to the Air Resources Board for exemption from the prohibitions in
Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391 to market its new aftermarket Series 60000
three—way catalytic converters (TWC) on selected 1995 through 2004 model year BMW
passenger cars equipped with on—board diagnostic II (OBD—I1I) systems as specified in
Appendix D—353—60 and incorporated herein. Series 60000 TWC will be used for single _
or multiple catalytic converter systems.                 s

WHEREAS, pursuant to the authority vested in the Executive Officer by Health and
Safety Code Section 39515 and in the Chief, Mobile Source Operations Division by
Health and Safety Code Section 39516 and Executive Order G—02—003, the Air
Resources Board finds that the above aftermarket catalytic converters comply with the
California Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38395 and Title 13, California Code of
Regulations, Section 2222(h). Emission performance of the catalytic converter was
based on durability bench—aging by Umicore Automotive Catalysts using the Air
Resources Board—modified RAT—A bench—aging cycle for 75 hours as specified in
Appendix A to the "California Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket Catalytic
Converters" as adoptedon October 25, 2007.

WHEREAS, previous emissions and OBD 11 compatibility tests conducted by Miller
Catalyzer Corporation using a vehicle of weight classification and exhaust configuration
similar to those listed in Appendix D—353—60 and certified to Low Emission Vehicle (LEV)
standards resulted in the issuance of Executive Orders D—353—24, it was determined that
the installation of Series 60000 on the vehicles listed in Appendix D—353—60 meets the
requirements of California regulation for aftermarket catalytic converters.

THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that Miller Catalyzer Corporation‘s 60000
TWCs are exempted from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391
for installation on the approved vehicle applications spec:lfled in Appendix D—353—60
subject to the following conditions:


                                          .   __2_

  and other factors addressed in this order must be evaluated and approved by the Air
  Resources Board prior to marketing in California.

. Marketing of the catalytic converters using identifications other than those shown in
  the exemption application, and in this Executive Order, or marketing of the catalytic
  converters for application other than the ones shown in this Executive Order shall be
  prohibitedunless prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.
  Exemption of these products shall not be construed as an exemption to sell, offer for
  sale, or advertise any components of the catalytic converters as individual devices.

._Any oral or written references tothis Executive Order or its content by Miller Catalyzer
  Corporation, its principals, agents, employees, distributors, dealers, or other        |
  representatives must include the disclaimer that the Executive Order or the exemption

   five (5) years or 50,000 miles as prescribed in Section (f)(2) of the "California
  Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket Catalytic Converters," as adopted
  October 25, 2007.

._ Miller Catalyzer Corporation and its vendors may not advertise the new aftermarket
    catalytic converters as "high flow or easy flow" catalytic converters or use any phrase
  _ that could make them appear to perform better than the original equipment
    manufacturer (OEM) catalytic converters.

._ Any marketing arrangement of the new aftermarket catalytic converter by a third
   party, which involves the use of packaging identification different from the ones
   described in this Executive Order, must be approved by the Air Resources Board
   prior to shipment.                      .

._ Miller Catalyzer Corporation, its associates, vendors, other businesses and
  individualsassociated with Miller Catalyzer Corporation may not sell or supply new
