Unfortunately since this is not a genuine BMW retrofit kit we would not be able to fit it at our dealership.

Would this be the same kit to fit the M1355i?

The above parts are the most common parts asked for when people are fitting the 3 door brace to their 5 door M140's

Also, the newer 3-dr doesn’t have it fitted as standard.

Does this kit adversely effect the original BMW warranty? I have a 2016 M140i and I’m considering this kit :)

It won't affect your current warranty unless it is the problem for a the fault, say you have a problem with your engine the dealer can turn around and say since you have this underbody kit we're not touching it.

If you understand what I mean :mrgreen:

Thanks. I’m guessing the ‘can’ is a typo and you meant to put ‘can’t turn around....’ :)

Is it easy enough to fit at home (on Small ramps) or would it require proper workshop fitting?

Yes that was a typo my mistake :lol:

You would obviously need to see the underside of the car so I would recommend a workshop ramp would be best for the job.

It may take a little longer but it is possible to fit this with the car on the ground.
