Thumbs down

Alright, well I just passed the 5k mileage mark on my 330Ci, and I want to start adding some performance upgrades. What do you guys recommend I add that wont void my warranty? I've heard a little bit about Dinan and AC Schnitzer and am looking for any info/advice/recommendations.


Also, are there any superchargers for a 330Ci?

All will void the warranty, apparently... just on those specific parts/systems. Dinan offers a warranty on their stuff though...

AA makes a S/C for the 330. Can't remember who else.

I am certain Dinan is the only / was the only BMW approved aftermarket performance parts dealer. Installing Dinan parts on your car should NOT void your warranty, however their agreement with BMW may be expired. Call your local dealer, or BMWNA and ask to be sure. They are quality parts, but VERY expensive.

Apparently, it does void the BMW warranty. Dinan takes over for the part of theirs you put in... they cover it from then on...

But yeah, Dinan is the only one. :-(
