I had my turbos done on Wednesday, cost me half the amount quoted above.
Would the warranty have covered my turbos given the fact I have Catless Downpipes, FMIC, Meth kit, Diverter valves etc? I dont think so. If the clutch went tomorrow, I'm sure they would say the same story, the clutch isnt designed to have 50% more power/torque running through it.
If you want a warranty, keep the car standard or just tune only.
if you plan to go further, then pocket the cash.

Like I say they wouldn't of made much money out of just adjusting/replacing wastegate actuator arms, so two new complete units it was!
You wouldn't take a car for a warranty claim with downpipes, intercooler etc.. fitted anyway, as I'm pretty sure it would void the warranty, and therefore be a waste of money.
I agree not worth taking on a warranty with mods.
What I am saying is the BMW insured warranty is very very good, and offers piece of mind for people who can't face huge bills for repairs.
