Do you have your stock heatshields installed over the headers? If so you should pass unless they’re looking under the car and at that point you just leave lol

Then the shop can easily see that you have aftermarket headers. Get heatshields and re-do. Passing visuals should be the easiest part imo.

Part #3. I'm sure you can find it cheaper somewhere though.

Realoem doesn't sell directly, they just show original list prices. Do a Google search for the part number, or go to your favorite source like fcp euro, Turner, thebmwminipartstore.com, bmwdiscountparts.com, etc to buy.
