Does lowering the car effect warranty?

Recommended Posts

I am considering dropping down my 02C2 coupe with H&R springs later on this year. I still have over a year of warranty on the car. Will doing this mod void or adversely effect the warranty?

Also, for those of you who have lowered your cars, which systems have you used? I am doing it mainly for looks with no plans of tracking this car.

Thanks.

No it will not. I had my H&R's installed by the dealer

Thanks, Andy.

Your car looks great! Just the look I'm going for. How much did your dealer charge for installation and alignment?

$931 for installation and alignment. I'm sure you could get it done for less but it was convenient  for me to have it done at the dealer.

IMHO - $800 to $900 is a very good price. Changing suspensions pieces and a 4 wheel alignment it at least a 5 hour job.

What suspension do you have standard or M030 (sport suspension)?

Street and occasional track? or track only?

Well, you you are not planning a lot of track activities you would likely want the M030 sport suspension. Porsche sells a kit that is springs, shocks, and swaybars that are tuned to work together. They will also lower your car about 20 mm front and 10 mm rear. Here is the set at Carnewal.com.

I have a black C2. Can I expect the dealership to put on new springs and NOT scratch/mar my clearcoat. I am nervous because that paint is so soft and marrs if you look at it the wrong way!

Just to say how blinding your car looks in yellow.

The only thing that worry's me about buying a yellow car here in the UK is trying to get rid of it if I ever wanted to sell it.
