                                   State of California
                               AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—576—1

                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                 of the California Vehicle Code

                                   BMW Group
                   John Cooper Works High Performance Tuning Kit

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 John Cooper Works High
Performance Tuning Kit, produced and marketed by BMW Group of 1 BMW Plaza,
Montvale, New Jersey 07645, 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 the 2002 to 2005 Mini Cooper S.

The John Cooper Works High Performance Tuning Kit consists of a higher flow cat—back
exhaust system, new cylinder head, upgraded supercharger, and upgraded ECU. The
ECU is reprogrammed for increased performance that exceeds the normal production
Mini Cooper S, but equal to the production Mini Cooper S JCW.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the instailation instructions for the John
Cooper Works High Performance Tuning Kit 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 John Cooper Works High
Performance Tuning Kit, 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 John Cooper Works High Performance
Tuning Kit 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 John Cooper Works High Performance Tuning Kit using any
identification. other than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the John
Cooper Works High Performance Tuning Kit 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
John Cooper Works High Performance Tuning Kit units may have on any warranty
either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on emission results submitted by BMW Group in
certifying their production 2004 Mini Cooper S JCW (E.0. A—008—0161, engine family
4BMXVO1.6R50) which is certified to the Low—Emission Vehicle Passenger Car
standard (LEV, PC). The Mini Cooper S JCW is the same as the Mini Cooper S with
the John Cooper Works High Performance Tuning Kit installed. The certification
emission results for the 2004 Mini Cooper S JCW are shown below (in grams per mile):

                ETP                                                       USO6
      50k        NMOG      CO      NOx      HCHO                      NMHC+NOx         CO
Emission Level 0.054       1.3     0.1      0.0005      Emission Level      0.04        3.3
(w. DF applied)
      STD       0.075      34        0.2    0.015              STD          0.14       8.0

     100k       NMOG       CO      NOx      HCHO
Emission Level 0.062       14      0.1      0.001
(w. DF applied)
      STD       0.090      4.2       0.3    0.018

The certification emission test results submitted for new vehicle certification have been
accepted as representative of emissions in the modified configuration. The certification
emission test results were below the applicable certification standards. Examination of
the OBD II system was not performed since BMW Group has demonstrated OBD ||
compliance during certification of the production 2004 Mini Cooper S JCW. Therefore,
based on the test results, the staff concludes that the John Cooper Works High
Performance Tuning Kit meets the criteria for exempting general criteria parts.
However, if evidence provides the ARB with reason to suspect that the John Cooper
Works High Performance Tuning Kit will affect the durability of the emission control
system, BMW Group shall be required to submit durability data to show that the
durability of the vehicle emission control system is not, in fact, affected and/or that the
add—on or modified part demonstrates adequate durability.

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 BMW GROUP‘S
JOHN COOPER WORKS HIGH PERFORMANCE TUNING KIT.
