Will fitting an Akrapovič void my warranty?

Hi Guys,

Thinking of adding a few mods to my 2012 JCW (for its first birthday), will an Akrapovič void my warranty?

Any advice on coil overs? I have a reasonable budget, so thinking KW, is Variant 3 worth the investment for fast road use or will variant 1, 2 do the job?

I appreciate your views

Most of our customers go for V1

Will you be a person who will constantly be looking for the perfect ride to suit you and keep adjusting the shocks until you're happy, then go for the V3's

One of the problems with the rear shocks is that unless you drill a hole above the shocks you have to drop the shock to get to the adjuster at the top

The nice thing about the KWV1 is there is no adjustabilty, sometimes that can be an advantage, though sometimes very frustrating if you are on track.

Suspension Packages

I would check with the dealer you use on the exhaust via e-mail rather than phone.

Forgot to say that I have used KW clubsports everyday which can be comfortable, but I'm use to stripped out race cars, so what I find comfortable and nice you might find a nightmare.
