So what can you put on your car that won't void the original 4yr/50K service warranty?

Also, I have a 2012 335is with 313's in 19". So does BMW have a performance brake upgrade for this care and will it void my warranty? I know they have Performance brakes for something close.

Thank you for any answers in advance.
This might be best answered by reading your warranty or lease terms. I believe these docs are pretty specific.

Having said this, my leased '05 E46 M3 had several mods that didn't seem to bother my dealer: light weight engine pulley (one of my car sponsors)...Eisenmann exhaust (cat back)...much lighter weight than the OE exhaust. Eibach anti-roll bars front and rear (sponsor), SSR wheels w/Toyo RA1 tires (sponsors)...that set off my indirect TPMS!

Nothing air intakes or engine mods. I never had any hassles at dealer service intervals. My car was used for company magazine ads, TV shows, and of course BMW CCA track events ('A' Class). What a hoot. I didn't turn it in under lease as the residual was "favorable," vs. market value, so I purchased it off lease...kept it a few more years and sold it. By that time I had "defeated" at least 150 hamster Prius cars on the road. Quite a proud record IMO.
