No prob.

In any case, the tests to figure out if anything is broken in the system are pretty easy. Unfortunately, many of them end with "replace entire fuel tank."

Sounds about right to me.
1. Add moar emissions control and lose some power
2. Add 5 bar fuel system, bigger injectors, wide-band O2 sensors, larger intake to get some peak power back
3. Say they make the same power as the non-SULEV variants
4. Cash in on gubmint subsidies
5. ???
6. PROFIT

So after the warranty ends, ditch some of the emissions silliness but keep it within spec, like the second set of set of cats. The most restrictive part of the equation is the exhaust. Idk, just seems to me there's some potential there.

You can swap in a non-M fuel tank and run an M3 fuel pump.
