Typically , you will be ok as long as it is a cat back exhaust. If you start messing with downpipes, all bets are off. Of course this all depends on your dealer and how picky they are.

You will void the warranty on anything effected by the aftermarket exhaust. Like the bumper should it be discolored or the hangers if one should break.

I always thought there was 24 hour count down that gets display on your iDrive before it explodes.

Stupid Aussies, hahahahaha

Seriously though, they may make comment re "reduced back pressure" as a result of a mod in exhaust, air sensors etc etc whatever.
