ED and modifications

can't resist dropping off the car to a few tuners in germany , of course this would be done after the break-in period.

would such things as exhaust, ecu and guages be removed by bmw while the car is being shipped?

I personally don't know if the stuff will be taken off. BMWNA does not look highly on this. It could also affect your warranty. Personally, I just don't see BMW taking the stuff off. I think they could do emissions testing when your car comes off the barge. Canada could be different than the U.S. I guess it would just be a risk that you take.

I've read that non-spec items will be removed, which has me concerned about installing items like alarms and cd-changers while in Europe.... I remember one writer saying that he was going to install the M wheel because he figured that it could not be removed (gotta steer the car....)
...from another thread.


any validity to this?
