BMW Canada will void my warranty

So I have a 2017 m240i 6MT and called up warranty to see if there are any repercussions for deleting the two resonators. The servicing manager said it will 100% void my warranty.

Then I proceeded to ask about installing the Dinan Midpipe and they said BMW doesn't work with Dinan anymore and Dinan parts will also void my warranty.

And then I asked about MPE exhaust and they said they don't have them for the 6MT for m240i. Only for automatic....


So now I'm confused about my exhaust upgrade options because I still have 40,000/2 years left on my warranty. And to be frank, the stock is very disappointing. So any advice guys?

Wow your dealer blows. Time to find a new dealership that's mod friendly.

I called both my BMW dealerships. They're all owned by Dilawri Auto Group in Canada. Must be a stanard policy with all the dealerships.
Really sucks man 😭

Deleting your resonators/adding a midpipe will void your warranty .... on the cat back exhaust system on nothing else (unless you damage something during the change) as i.e. an interior problem with the seats can not be traced back to a change in the exhaust.

feelsbad, do you think if I cut resonators and go for regular servicing they will notice and flag car? I was thinking worst case scenario if a random code pops up, I can chuck the two resonators back on and take in car for warranty work.

They could do that, but why would they? A) they make money on service/repairs (which include warranty work) and B) BMW wouldn't deny you warranty on i.e. an injector because you removed a resonator as you could drag them to court and win

I have a hard time believing that they void the warranty for removing the resonators. I've rolled into my Montreal dealers with my 335 with JB4, AFE air intake, KWv3s and UR DP and only recommended that I should ditch the AFE intake. They make too much money on warranty work to gripe about resonators.
