i7 x60 - CA (CARB) Carpool Sticker

For any i7 owners in California, do you know why BMW left the i7 x60 off the list for 2024? Looks like 2023 was included, and 2024 includes the e50 and M70.

As you can see, I'm actually a 2024 i7 eDrive50 owner who also lives in the SF Bay Area.

This is exactly why I bought the 50 instead of the 60, because the California Air Resources Board no longer supported it for their emissions certificate to obtain toll pass discounts. Further, BMW thought the xDrive60 had already received sufficient sales, so asked CARB to help push forward sales of the eDrive50s and M70s by removing it. Lastly, the CARB chairman hates that the Chiefs beat the Niners by 6 points, so banned xDrive6[0] certifications.

OK, so only one of the above two paragraphs has any shred of truth in them.

You mulyak -- check your list! The xDrive60 IS on it! It got lumped in directly above the eDrive50 row as the last vehicle starting with the i4s (probably an administrative carryover from what was available in 2023). haha -- I know I know, easy mistake. Take care and enjoy your car. We're all "on the list." Shhhhhh -- gub'nent secrets y'know.

Completely understandable mistake -- it certainly is a bit hidden. I only happened to see where it was from having reviewed that webpage before I sent in my EV certification request to the DMV. A couple of quick questions:

1. How long did it take the DMV to send you your EV certification (I sent in my request/form and the $22 fee on Dec 16 but have heard nothing back yet); and

2. Just purely out of curiosity, where are you here in the SFBA? I'm in San Leandro.

1. It took about three months, having applied in Oct of 23.
2. San Jose

It came about nine days after the check cleared.

Good to hear. San Jose as well, so hoping to see you around. The only other i7 that I have seen so far was EA charging next to me, and that person had the rear executive lounge package and was just chilling.

Looks like a coworker of mine that had an iX applied in mid October, check was just cleared. Looks like it won't be too much longer to get a sticker. We'll see how long mine takes . Will add data point when I receive it.

Stumbled across this thread as I’ve been looking for info about the CAV decals and posted in other forums. It looks like 3-4mo is the likely waiting time as of Feb. I applied in late Dec and have not seen my check clear yet. Looking to wring as much extra benefit from this scheme until it times out in Sep 25.
