: "A little information about a Factory Warranties (taken from After market News 95)

: Federal Law states that the installation of after market parts cannot allow a car dealership to void the warranty on the vehicle. The warranty may only be voided under the following
: circumstances:

: “If an emission system or part failure is directly caused by the installation of after market parts, the manufacturer may void the warranty. It is not legal for the manufacturer
: to void the warranty if a defect occurs
: which was not directly caused by the installation of the after market parts.”

: This does not mean that your dealer can not void your warranty, the dealer can void it but not legally unless the above is true."

what that says and what i said are the same thing. if BMW can trace the cause if a warranty claim back to the part you installed, your warranty is VOID. therefore, if you install a turbo or SC your drivetrain warranty is voided, end of story

another way to look at it is this: you install SC then A) the cupholder breaks B) the differential breaks. Situation A would be covered, situation B wouldn't.
