As long as you have no suspension complaints, there should be no note made of it.
Tell your SA in advance but only if you trust him.

Being flagged depends on what is flagged.
If they mention you have aftermarket suspension, then you most likely will not be able to make any future warranty claims in regards to suspension
It also depends if they flag you internally (dealer only) or nationally on the Dealer Service Network

The appointment was made with Chris, BTW. I hope that is ok.
Jamie was complaining about noise that was near the suspension, and I guess they just didn't want to deal with it.

I'm curious to see how the point system works

So let me make it clear that i choose not to drive the car... the exhaust is not necessarily forcing me NOT to drive it.
How did you curb rash it on a joy ride? I've only heard people rashing their wheels when parking? or was it a pot hole?

Putting a wooden wing on a mustang is NOT in good taste. Putting a VTEC sticker on a Toyota is NOT in good taste.

If you wanna roll pink wheels on a blurple car... then do your thang. Thats what you like. If you wanna sport a fully JDM Integra, do your thang... If you're a muscle car head, do your thang... but don't spew a bunch of negative things about someone personal taste. that just my opinion. take it as you will.

I respect you for your choice to be not so flashy. Mod away friend!
I don't understand the people who put like -5 degrees of camber... I mean, it looks tight, but... you can't drive it.... or that's my guess, i've never driven a car with -5 degrees of camber

Now I'm curious to hear your opinion on my M3

You only need to wait for the car to cool down when adding coolant, not oil IIRC

BMW won't usually cover it unless your SA is tight
Then he might
