E39 with Dinan mods

Hello, I am considering the purchase of a 2001 540i. It has less than 50k miles and has several Dinan mods, to include performance chip, strut brace, and performance exhaust. Is there any particular problem with these mods to the car? Also, will a BMW dealer service the car? Is there anything special I should know about these cars? Thanks for any help given.

Nothing necessarily special about the mods.

BMW dealer should still be able to service the vehicle (although it will cost you $$)

If I were you, I'd search around this forum regarding common e39 problems. There is a ton of information that has been discussed in detail.

They will service your vehicle as long as you have the $$$$ to pay for it. Find a good trustworthy indy and look up some of the DIY's and you will be fine.
