I dont expect them to replace my Downpipes for example. in general they have a good idea about what usually goes wrong with these cars, so you should not have issues getting coverage. Also, generally warranties offered through financial institutions are better and less likely to deny coverage.

With the N54, especially early models I strongly recommend getting an aftermarket warranty. The warranty will most likely pay for itself, especially if you dont have complete records, and some big ticket items have not been addressed.
I agree the aftermarket warranty is a must for these cars... spent 3k on mine and so far I have had well over 12k of repairs!

Can anyone answer the following?
Will a fmic void an aftermarket warranty?
Will DP void an aftermarket warranty?

I've seen mixed stories with DPs, but nothing on fmic.

I doubt that a dealership or warranty company could prove a FMIC caused a problem, except in concert with a tune or piggyback.

A DP, however, by definition interferes with the pollution-control equipment and turbo circulation. Depending upon the problem, they could well refuse coverage.
