"Mod-Friendly BMW dealer SOCAL

I have to go in for my one year and oil change, and I'm wondering if anyone knows of a dealership that is a little more lenient on the modification side.

I live in newport beach, ca and know that sterling BMW is for sure not "Mod Friendly"

thanks for the help

How mod friendly are we talking? I just picked up my car from there last week... though it's a lease. Kind of sketchy about bringing my car there for service one I start modifying...

i brought my car in full bolt on twice for service with no hassle. if i were you i woudn't worry much. my car is way far from stock and again they're cool about it if it's only complimentary service work. anything that involves warranty is a no brainer.

I would definitely say Irvine BMW - last time I was in there the parts guys kept trying to sell me performance mods for my E92.

+1 for @[Charlie@McKennaBMWService](contact:199095) He went above and beyond to get my car running like a champ! My car is heavily modded as well and had ZERO issue with the dealership...he even fixed an exhaust leak due to a loose clamp on my Meisterschaft
