Only company that will not void dealer warranty is Dinan but they have not released springs yet for the F32

It depends on the dealer. Most won't care unless something breaks as a result of the mods. I just installed H&R sports on my xdrive and it dropped it about 2" which is aggressive and obvious to anyone that knows these cars. Don't install springs without changing the shocks too as they're under damped for the lower/stiffer springs.

From what I've been told... Dinan is in the process of developing springs for the f32 xdrive. Hopefully it won't be too long

Does this still apply if I have xDrive w/ DHP?

I want to lower my F32 with just H&R sport springs. I figured since I have DHP, adding shocks isn't necessary.

Unfortunately, ACS is very difficult to get in Canada (not sure about the States)

I spoke to a guy called chris at the uk shop, and he said you don't need the dampers.
Here is a link to the uk shop, maybe they can help
