So if we want to sell a car, we have to pass an $80 STAR inspection now? The regular smog check won't work? Jesus H. I thought test-only inspection was for gross polluter owners who needed certified help/advise in making the repairs.
The way things are going, 10 years from now smog technicians will all be BAR referees. They might as well just go ahead and ban Autozone, NAPA etc. and take over the auto repair and parts markets as well. CA should just break free from the US to become a dictatorship and start actually raping it's citizens.
