BMW Brings Motorsport Parts in the US

BMW has just made an important announcement for the Americans: the German car manufacturer will start selling BMW Motorsport parts for the first time in the United States. This will only be done through selected dealerships.

BMW stated “this BMW Motorsport/racing/off-road Parts Catalog gives you an overview of the specially developed BMW Motorsport parts. Some parts may not be available in the US and may not be approved for all racing series or class. All parts listed are intended for use on approved motorsport/racing/off-road series BMW vehicles ONLY.

"The parts are Not DOT-approved, homologated or street legal and may adversely affect the original manufacturer’s limited warranty on the vehicle. Installation of motorsport/racing/off-road parts on a vehicle may render it nonstreet legal. Suspension parts (including but not limited to struts, shock absorbers and springs) must be used together as a system and should not be partially installed or combined with anyother components from BMW or other manufacturers. Purchasers of motorsport/racing/off-road parts will be required to sign a disclaimer, waiver and release.”

Apparently BMW will give you whatever parts you want, but they refuse liability for anyone using them on the street. You will have to sign a waiver and forego your warranty. That's not going to be a problem, as most BMW enthusiasts who modified their cars have already foregone their warranties.
