1999 Mini Cooper 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 22000 miles
I have a 1999 Rover Mini Cooper that is registered in the US as a 1999. Texas is the 3rd state of I have lived in with this car.3 yrs in Texas. My car has always passed inspection with a 2 speed idle test This year Williamson County says that if it does not hook up to the OBD2 then is will automatically fail. No more tailpipe tests allowed. Of course it doesnt hook up & they dont know what to do. They dont know how to make " it right". I am trying to get a waiver.I know that I could probably have " re-vinned" it but I wanted to do this the legal way. From what I can tell I probably have an OBD from the UK or Germany which followed no standards by any means until 2001.
Any ideas? Thoughts? Can I make it OBD2 compliant? Is there some argument that I can use so that I can just drive my mini?
