i think one of the main reasons is the new motor is all alloy? and its warms up quicker, therefore putting out less emissions.

Euro 3 emissions also covers "Drive by" noise levels too, as in tyre noise, wind noise from the vehicle ( mirrors, wheel covers, mag wheels, spoilers, etc....).

yep, you'd know cjh. talk about pox, the engine takes say 5 minutes to warm up, and comply whereas the new standards want the cars to comply asap... wonder why they wont try alloy blocks in the i6
