You should be happy if they don't charge you extra for the mod. The car doesn't belong to you. They have to sell it after you turn it back, so would they be interested in selling a car that's been tuned? No serious buyer wants to buy a car that's been tuned by someone else. And Dinan's warranty or not - it doesn't void the extra wear&tear.
BMW would not be indorsing the Dinan tune if there were a “material” amount of wear and tear on the engine. I doubt very seriously that there is any significant wear and tear difference. Anybody shopped for a used ZR1, Porsche, Lamborghini and said “no thanks, I bet the car was driven too hard”. A ZR1 will pull a higher price than a Z06 and the Z06 will pull a higher price than the base vette.
