aftermarket dp on warranty


i am taking my car to bmw dealership for oil change in about 500 miles, but i am getting dp installed on my car probably tomorrow.

will the dealership try to void my warranty? or will they not work on my car due to the dp?

much input is appreciated.

thank you~

It may cause an issue since catless DP's are illegal. A few dealers might overlook, but others may make a note and that could cause issues in the future. Maybe just have someone else do the oil change. Even if it's free from the dealer, it would save you the possibility of having issues down the road. Or just hold off on the dp install for 501 miles.

The dealership will flag your car in their system when they see the DPs. Then if any issues arise in the future they will see you have mods and try and blame the DPs or other aftermarket products to void the warranty.

My brother worked at a BMW dealership for 4 years.. He tells me how he's seen warranties voided all the time from exhaust and dp mods. Your best bet if you have the DPs installed is to find a rep at the dealership who is cool with mods. They're out here, just just need to ask around.

I agree with shadow191. Just wait till after 500 mi
