Like stated it all depends on the dealer and more importantly the CUSTOMER attitude.

When I worked for my local BMW dealer if we seen any modded cars with anything except DINAN on them, We did not warranty anything in that area. EX: if you had lowering springs and the car needed control bushings due to wear. We did not warranty them, but if the eng needed a cam sensor we warrantied it. NOW if it was DINAN springs we could warranty them. BMW sells DINAN thru some of their dealers so they say it is OK. I have even seen that dealer NOT warranty a suspension issue due to aftermarket wheels even if they were the same size as the OEM.

My local dealer will be cool with any mods I do. I worked for them for 5 years before they sold the BMW franchise.

MY current MB dealer is on a case by case deal. IT all depends on the customer, what was done, could it have effected the failure, etc.

I would think a catch can would be ok. IMO you are catching the oil before it enters back into the intake so you wont have as much carbon issues.
