San antonio HPFP recall help

My 2007 335i HPFP is going out. My car has a little over 35k miles on it. I have a service engine soon light on. When I pulled the codes it's for the HPFP.

So here's the problem. I know there's a recall for the HPFP. But my car is slightly modded. I have aftermarket intercooler. Intake. Downpipe. Exhaust. Procede rev 3 tuner. Hks blow off valve. BMS catch can. And Vishnu fuel flex system. Will this void my recall? Any service advisors in San Antonio that can help me out? If anyone can helpe me please call or text me at 210.286.7078

Thank you all fellow bimmer

Just remove the procede and leave the rest. It is unrelated anyway.

Talked to my SA about mods today. He said really only chipping voids the warranty, but since its a recall, they might do it anyways. My guy is Albert, I heard a Lou g is pretty cool too!

You should be ok without the JB. Interesting that it's waited this long to go out on you. The warranty will cover HPFP, as it's a design/manufacturing/quality defect, and wouldn't be influenced by anything that you have on the car - even the tune - but better not to get anyone's shorts in a knot.

Hmmm....what about a recall? Is that not covered even if I am outside of the warranty period?

I need to go over and meet Lou G, as not only do I have the new F30, but my wife's 2011 128i Convert is due for service, and I'm really not up for driving all the way to Austin for minor/scheduled service.

Ditto for Lou, my M3 is getting the differential replaced and he worked with the extended warranty folks to get it approved, also had a loaner from the dealer and got rear ended on the second day I had the car and by the time I made my way back to the dealer he had another loaner lined up, no questions ask (only to make sure I was ok). There's another SA by the name of Rio, very customer service oriented as well!
