Lowering springs

I just dropped my 2012 550i with H&R lowering springs sets, as a right now it change the looks of the car dramaticaly and feels good as well not bumpy at all. My question is did void the warranty doing that? any consecuences with the suspension in the future? Thanks

If the springs directly caused a failure to your shocks then you'll pay for it to get fixed and will void the warranty. BUT they have to prove that the springs caused that damage. To avoid that you can remove it and reinstall your OEM springs. If you did it yourself then no big deal right. But if you have to pay someone to remove it then it's going to cost you to remove and to reinstall.

Ok got it! if it get to that point i will pay to reinstall the original ones it wasnt that expensive to switch it and i rather do that than pay for shocks or some else that it will cost way more. But thanks for the info brother.

I went to look for the receipt and i payed exactly $276.25 for them to install the springs, then went to te dealership for the alignment and that was $120.00 that was it.
