I took the 308 to a muffler place yesterday (Austin) and the owner was telling me Travis County will begin emission testing in Sept. He told me I'll need to be careful with mufflers and cats, etc in order to pass the emission test. I kind of got into a panic until this morning when I remembered (ok, I'm an idiot) that the car CAME from Dallas. What year did emission testing start in Dallas, its been quite a while hasn't it? I purcashed the car several years back. I'm assuming if it passed in Dallas it'll pass in Austin later this year.
