Despite the fact that I don't run a tune or track my 1M, I just decided not to wait for warranty to expire or the stock unit blow all of a sudden and today ordered the ER charge pipe. This car doesn't deserve such poorly designed, flawed pieces kept in, imo a reliable car is always better than any warranty. My whole experience with BMW dealers since I ordered this car was quite frustrating like most people, I pretend that this car doesn't even have any warranty, any free service or so and I am on my own and thus I avoid the dealer as long as it is possible since every time I needed them and took my car in, something unnecessary, something worse than original issue happened due to their incompetence or indifference and I totally regretted doing so.
Maybe my stock cp would never have any issues but I prefer to forget about this potential issue and have a peace of mind over this gambling. Avoiding a nasty problem sounds wiser to me than fixing it after it happens.
