E82 / E87 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by a naturaly aspirated inline 6 in the 128 or the turbo twin power inline 6 rocket sled 135.

My 2012 135 with H/K has a superior sound system to my 2009 Hi-Fi.

I am looking at purchasing a CPO 335is. The car does not have the harman kardon sound system.

Does anybody know if I upgrade my system with an aftermarket system, does it void the CPO warranty?

Thanks!

@rmjames007 Thanks for the insight.

Do you know if replacing the speakers affects the BMW warranty?

Thanks!

Jeff

Honetly i dont know. I would think it would. depends on the type of warrenty

good thing about bavsound is that its just speaker upgrades, so its easy to install.

BMW says that replacing the speakers voids the iDrive part of your warranty.

I asked what happens if the head unit is also replaced. Waiting on an answer...

Harmon Kardon Speaker System

Honestly I think the idrive part is the weakest part of BMW warrenty.

Most times if it is electricial then dealers dont want to touch it unless its a huge bug
