importing a 2008 Altima from Canada to California

Just called Nissan USA earlier today asking what needs to be done in order to import my 2008 Altima to California and get registration. The agent was able to answer that the only thing I'd need to adjust to import to the States is dimming the Daytime Running Light brightness.

But unfortunately she was unable to answer anything specific to California(e.g. whether it can pass the smog test there/what kind of modifications needs to be done). I'm a bit worried because I've heard California has stricter requirements than many other states and the money for the modifications the tests plus registration to pass might not worth the move.

Anyone has similar experience before or knows who should I talk to?
