JB+ bmw warranty and insurance

Post by harve91 » Thu May 18, 2017 11:49 am

Hi

This may be a stupid question and I'm pretty sure I know the answer but just wanted to be sure
I have a m135i 13 plate and I pay monthly warranty with bmw,
I fitted a jb+ and loved it but I have taken it off because I thought it would invalidate the warranty I'm paying for. I was thinking if anything went wrong with engine or gearbox they could invalidate the warranty because of it. Is that the case or are you safe running one and still having to claim if something breaks? I know it's quick to get on and off but would imagine it will leave some trace in the ecu.
Also do people tell the insurance companies about it?

Thanks

Paul

Yes, it throws background 'tuner' codes (air mass plausibility or something similar).

And yes, you 100% need to have your car insured & fully declared!! :shock:

But isn't the damage already done? I.E the tuning codes are already there so there's not much point taking it off now?

I'm not sure I read somewhere that it gets wiped off after a couple of hundred miles of driving. Not sure how correct that is
