Its been a while, but here is some love for the 6series guys.

22" Staggered Vertini Hennessey wheels.

I know, it needs to be dropped.
I already told him to lower it, but the Dealership told him it would void the warranty.

So, he is going to look into that, while still considering to lower it, and considering on the M6 conversion.

What year is his car and which dealer does he go to? Tell him to look up the Magnusson-Moss Act regarding protection of consumer rights on warranties.

Basically a dealer can't just void your warranty unless they can prove that your aftermarket part caused the failure of the part being claimed for warranty service. An example would be if he put lowering springs and his shocks blew out due to the stiffer ride, then the dealer won't have to change his shocks under warranty. But if he lowered his car and his AC goes out, they should still be liable to fix his AC.

Thats what I had already told him. He is under the impression that if he did lower it, what even dealer he deals with will void the entire warranty. I didnt want to sit there and argue with him for too long.
