they could blame some of your suspension issues on your wheels.

I had my dealership do an alignment on my car, which they botched. When I complained that it came out like ass, they told me it wasn't their fault... my aftermarket rims must have thrown it off.

I just stood there without saying anything and rolled my eyes at the guy. They offered to run another one for free.

Taking my car to the dealership for service is always fun. I love having my intelligence insulted.

NO. In fact it is against the law to deny any warranty unless it is directly related to the aftermarket part installed, and even then its a grey area. So might try to give you a hard time about suspension, but they can't blame any engine issues on the wheels.

Yup..that is my problem...I'm hearing some clicking sounds from the front suspension and actually a squeal when I'm turning left on low rpm's.

This squeal has been existent ever since I had my 17" stockers...so they have it on record.

We know that on the full scheduled maintenance program for BMW's..almost everything is covered..

My brake pads are almost running out so they have to change it..do you think they will have an issue in changing these pads to the wheels...

My wheels are BBS' so they are light...can that be my argument??

Thanks!

Doubt you'll have issues with either area. I would also argue about the BBS wheels being light if they even put up a fuss.
