I understand your point, but I've been through this with two cars in the
last 21 months.  The first, a 95 Ford Explorer, I had dealers doing
extensive searches in the entire NorthEast.  They could only sell me cars
that had been prepared for sales in Massachusetts or New York.  Most makes
only list them as CA emissions.  The second is the A4Q.
