I still have my OEMs but i have taken my car in for service all the time with the 20s and never had an issue. Its just service, unless its something wrong with the suspension or something where they can blame the wheels for the problem then it might be an issue but i dont think u should worry to much.

thats the exact reason i made a poll. if something were to happen and i sold my oem and i needed them to get my car serviced what can i do? i can pay someone here $200-300 and let me use it for a day to bring in a dealership or something but who would do that?

trying to think of options.

In many years of won BMWs with aftermarket wheels, I have never had an issue with them causing problems at service or warranty work. I hope it continues that way.
