Headlight bulb replacement

Hello Everyone, does anyone knows if replacing the headlight and fog light bulbs to led will this void warranty?

No idea. Are you making physical changes to anything or are these drop-in bulbs? If drop-in, no flashing required, etc., I'd just keep the old bulbs in case of trouble. Then swap them back in before the dealer. Might work!

No unless it creates and found to cause other problems. If you do replace halogen bulbs to led, you need to code your ecu for led bulbs, else you'll get error codes and flashing/hyperflasing.
Search forum on led swap, there are many discussions on this, what you need to do, and what you need. Search is your friend.

Well these will be plug n' play bulbs so I guess they have to be coded. I just hope the dealership doesn't give me any issues or denying servicing the vehicle if I ever need service done on it for example oil change or any recalls if any that needs to be done

Have you changed the halogen bulbs to LED yourself? If so, did the dealership give you any problems?

Maybe you have to confirm the LEDs meet legal specs, which is more important. Not all LEDs are the same and I wouldn't just trust the manufacturer saying they are legal. I think f48 has "pseudo-adaptive" LED headlights that don't actually move:

If you need coding, it may be overwritten with BMW firmware updates.
