strange isnt it, my 2010 S1000RR had its engine go pop at approx 2700 miles, it has a full Akro PCV /auto tune, block off plates and air filters, while it took BMW 2 weeks to decide if it was covered or not in the end they covered it and I got a whole new engine. the early 2010s had some cam issues and mine was right in the middle of the production dates for the failure. in researching the failure is where I learned of the warranty stance on the competition kit.

as much as I would like to have the "BMW kit" to me it is better to go the after market route and let BMW try to meet the burden of proof to void the warranty if there is an issue rather than to buy the oem equip and agree to it being possibly compromised up front.
