Is this the VIP Q that was listed in the San Francisco Craigslist for a couple of weeks?
You won't be able to register the car until it passes smog. When you're spending that kind of $$ for a car you should have had the owner provide a valid smog certificate. The limits are tight and if the engine is not running well (i.e. one bad injector) you could have problems getting it to pass. The previous owner had issues with high HC on my 94Q with only 49k on the odometer. Now 2 years later it's time for me to get it smogged again.
Where are you located?
