Default Are all Cayenne's Cali smog okay?

I couldn't find a good source to confirm. I am looking to buy a Cayenne and ship it to me in Cali. The question is, are all Cayenne's good to pass Cali smog?

It should be...

I just passed smog yesterday with a car I transport edEd from Houston.

Car was stock. Had ten codes on it, but we're for minor items like a rear door light not checking in.

My advice it to get an Icarscan. And check your Cayenne with it before a smog test. If you clear your DME you will have to drive about 200 miles before a smog test for everything to register.

General statement:

A lot of cars are '50 state compliant.'
The old '49 state' vs 'Cali legal' isn't anywhere near as common as it used to be.
But it still exists.

There should be a sticker under the hood that says what rules it complies with.

Specific statement:

My 05 (955) has the emissions sticker under the hood.

It is "Cali legal".
