    Default Ulez

    hi
    i would like to ask
    i am based in London and intend to obtain a emission certificate to apply for ULEZ exemption
    i read on this forum there are 2 ways of approaching the matter
    by contacting BMW and obtain a emission data and present it to ULEZ - have send them an email but kinda doubt they will do send anything!
    also have been to Battarsea BMW dealer to ask about it - the reception was not what I expected - They made me feel like I enter their premises with
    a Chainise copy BMW and got rid of me with useless answers for less than a minute !
    I felt sorry for them !!!!!!
    maybe i did ask the wrong person ! - attractive female with a ton of make up at the front reception desk probably thinking of .... who executive to scratch first
    which let me thing of the second option

    going for test station and get the bike threw emission test 175 pound cost
    the question is :
    should I buy and install an original F650 GS exhaust can from a later model ? apparently later model do have a catalyst
    and then go for the test ?
    or that wont cut it ! -bike needs to be specifically set up by specialist for low nox !
    currently my bike is fitted with a single after market can !
    has not been remapped what so ever !
    runs OK
    Regards

    Hi,
    yes BMW seemed not to be helpful, more interested in new bike sales, not keeping 'old bikes' going ?

    this recent thread should help ;
