I recently bought this 2003 C4 cabriolet with 52k miles. When I test drove it, everything sounded great, it ran great, and the whole car looked good. I checked the oil for any milky looking stuff, checked the battery, and coolant color and level. According to a couple friends, I seem to have gotten this car for a very cheap price ($33k), almost "too good to be true". It still runs great and the engine sounds great, however it has not been inspected for emissions (waiting on registration). I was wondering if I'll have trouble passing inspection. here are the results of a live scan i did while running idle using some OBD scanning software. are any of these values something I should worry about? Will it pass emission standards as long as they see no trouble codes?

Congrats on the purchase.

Not enough data for emissions.

You would need a PST2 or PIWIS to see the OBD2 readiness check status.

A Durametric might provide more info regarding potential SMOG issues as well as other useful PPI data.

As long as the car runs fine and there are no CELs I wouldn't worry about passing SMOG.

the only CEL i got was a misfire on cylinder 1 (P0301) when it rained here for a week. when things dried and I cleared the error, the error hasn't returned. i wasn't concerned when it happened because the engine still sounded normal.

ok, replaced all plugs and coil packs but cylinder 1 misfire (p0301) still happens only when it rains a lot. is there anything else that would throw that error when something gets wet? the car runs great and sounds great, even when the CEL gets triggered. The CEL error is more of an annoyance than a problem.
