Hello
I'm moved recently to CA from NY and I'm thinking about registration my focus. Unfortunately it doesn't have sticker under hood(...this car is for sale in cali or not...), so I don't really know.... I don't want to pay smogcheck fees if it fail for sure Car was originally from NY, vin 3fafp....
Is there any other way to check, or register that car in CA?

You will need a California Smog Inspection for registration. A 49 state vehicle will pass the test- where did the under hood label go? Where in CA are you moving to?

I'm moving to Orange County, and I think that radiator support would be replaced, and there's no label.
