If you look on this map, http://www.dinancars.com/dealers/
, you will find many, many BMW dealers who will put Dinan products on your car. My guess is, these dealers would not perform mods which they new would void the BMW warranty. I don't think it would be good for business.
Dina appears to have some kind of in with BMW. However promising that might appear, it would still be smart to check into the warranty issue.
Small stuff no problem, bit if the engine ever needs replacing you can bet your bottom dollar BMW will say nope, and good luck getting a dealer or dinan to pony up $35,000 for a crate S65. Pay to play- take any claims to the contrary by a stealership or dinan with a grain of salt.
