Not in the least. Dealers typically don't go on scavenger hunts looking for reasons to void warranties. Driving in with a burnt clutch and only 15,000mi on the odometer would be another story altogether, especially if the customer expects BMW to foot the bill.

However, if there is a situation in which a PUMA case is opened (warranty claim) that involves engine management, this may be an issue. For those tuners that lock down their flash tunes - this can potentially open up a pandora's box of issues. We keep a backup of your stock file on hand (as well as on GIAC's servers), in which you can revert back to stock at any time, or if the dealer overwrites your performance tune with a stock file.

I've said it before in other threads, treat your SA with respect and often you'll get the same in return.

You can blame the over-revs on a dumb monkey shift you did on the highway at 110mph and accidentally hit 2nd gear. If it's a 6MT that is.

I doubt poor driving technique like a mech overrev will get you much warranty sympathy.
