My Audi aces Nazi inspection

The CA government gestapo has dented my wallet again to the tune of $50 for
the state (police state) emissions inspection (state slush fund).  For
those outside of CA (live free and cheap while you can), yes, we have to
pay this ON TOP OF the license registration, which is based on a vehicles
value.  Expensive cars get really expensive (perverse incentive: buy used
instead and lie about how much you paid for the vehicle).  The good news,
after 145k, my 4kq sails through the inspection while a Honda Accord and
Buick LeSabre are sent back to the concentration camp for further expensive
"tuning."  Gotta love a car like that.
