Hold on a minute, only the 600 and the 601 need upgrading. I say order two Challengers and get this over with. Any of you ever cross the pond in a Citation? Didn't think so.

I see the document recommending examining replacement options is a year old.
The regulations that are changing are coming into effect in 2014.

I suspect we can pickup the parts and install work in China pretty cheap, and it fits this governments MO perfectly.
