The JCW Tuning Kit consists of an improved air filter, a sport/performance exhaust system
downstream of the catalytic converter, and a modified software program for the Digital Motor
Electronics.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the JCW 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 JCW Tuning Kit, as exempted by
the Air Resources Board, that adversely affect the performance of a vehicle‘s pollution
control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the JCW Tuning Kit using any 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 Air Resources
Board.

This Executive Order does not constitute any bpinion as to the effect that the use of the JCW
Tuning Kit may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.

This exemption is issued based on previously submitted emissions test data from BMW
Group on a 2009 model year BMW Mini Cooper S (Hardtop) (Test Group 9BMXVO1.6LER)
certified to the Low Emission Vehicle !I Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (LEV II ULEV)                ‘

Federal Test Procedure:

                                                NMOG        CO        NOX

Device (g/mi) with df‘s applied                 0.015       0.3       0.01

Test results showed that the JCW Tuning Kit when installed on the vehicle did not cause
exhaust emissions to exceed the applicable emission standards during the Cold Start
Federal Test Procedure. This Executive Order is also based on On—Board Diagnostic (i
(OBD II) testing. The JCW Tuning Kit when installed did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to
perform its OBD II monitoring.

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 JCW TUNING KIT.

No claims 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.
