                                    State of California
                                AIR RESOURCES BOARD


                               EXECUTIVE ORDER D—576—9

                       Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                    of the Vehicle Code


                                        BMW Group
                           BMW Performance Power Kit Retrofit

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

 Purssuant 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 BMW Performance Power
 Kit Retrofit manufactured and marketed by BMW Group of 200 Chestnut Ridge Road,
 Building 150, Woodcliff Lake, NJ 07677, 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 the following BMW
—light—duty trucks:
 Kit Part Number                            Vehicle Application

 11 12 2 183 955         — 2008—2010 model year BMW X6 xDrive35i 3.0L

 11 12 2 183 957         — 2008—2010 model year BMW X6 xDrive50i 4.4L

 The BMW Performance Power Kit Retrofit is a modified software calibration in the subject
 vehicle‘s engine control module that is designed to provide increases in engine fuel flow and
 the maximum boost pressure generated by the subject vehicle‘s two stock turbochargers.

 This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the BMW
 Performance Power Kit Retrofit will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications
 different from those of BMW Group.

 Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the devices, 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 these devices using ény 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.


                                             7.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect that the use of these
devices may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This exemption is issued based on submitted emissions test data from BMW Group on a
2010 model year BMW X6 xDrive50i 4.4L (Test Group ABMXVO4.4E71) certified to the Low
Emission Vehicle II Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (LEV II ULEV) and Supplemental Federal
Test Procedure (SFTP) standards:

Federal Test Procedure:

                                                  NMOG        CO        NOX
Standards (g/mi)                                  0.055       2.1       0.07
Device (g/mi) with df‘s applied                   0.024       0.2       0.03

SFTP (USO6 Cycle):

                                                  NMHC+NOX            CO
Standards (g/mi)                                     0.60            11.8
Device (g/mi)                                        0.15              2.0

Test results showed that the BMW Performance Power Kit Retrofit when installed on the
vehicle did not cause exhaust emissions to exceed the applicable emission standards during
the Cold Start Federal Test Procedure. The test vehicle was not required to be tested under
the SFTP SCO3 cycle because that cycle is run at relatively low engine speeds whereas the
BMW Performance Power Kit Retrofit only impacts the vehicle at higher engine speeds.
This Executive Order is also based on On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) testing. The BMW
Performance Power Kit Retrofit 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 BMW
PERFORMANCE POWER KIT RETROFIT.

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.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this order. The
order may be revoked only after a ten day written notice of intention to revoke the order, in
which period the holder of the order may request in writing a hearing to contest the proposed
revocation. If a hearing is requested, it shall be held within ten days of receipt of the request

and the order may not be revoked until a determination is made after the hearing that
grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this     [5 day of June 2010.
