Weird DME issue not showing proper VIN

I got this car sometime ago and have been dealing with an odd issue. To pass my states emissions the VIN on the DME needs to match with the VIN on the chassis. For some reason the VIN is pulling up as a 07 335i. I'm a dealer and this is my personal driver so I ran the carfax on both cars to make sure nothing fishy was going on. The 07 335i is located in New York, still getting driven, and my car is located in Oregon(bought in Florida).

I had a local guy in Portland check the DME. The VIN from WINKFP(if I recall) showed the proper VIN. He told me it could be a used JB4 messing with the VIN. I removed the JB4 and the VIN was still reading to the 07 335i.

The last thing I can think of is it having someones MHD tune? Is that even possible to use someone elses MHD flash even though they're VIN locked? I was thinking since it's VIN locked it could just piggyback their DME vin onto my 135i?
