Your vehicle is technically configured for the op‐
erating conditions and registration requirements
applying in the country of first delivery, also
known as homologation. If your vehicle is to be
operated in a different country it might be neces‐
sary to adapt your vehicle to potentially differing
operating conditions and registration require‐
ments. If your vehicle does not comply with the
homologation requirements in a certain country
you may not be able to lodge warranty claims for
your vehicle there. Further information on war‐
ranty is available from a dealer’s service center.
Maintenance and repairs
Improperly performed work on the vehicle paint
can lead to a failure or malfunction of the radar
sensors and thereby result in a safety risk.
There is a risk of accidents or risk of damage to
property. Have paintwork or paintwork repairs
on bumpers of vehicles with radar sensors per‐
formed by a dealer’s service center or another
qualified service center or repair shop only.
Advanced technology, e. g. the use of modern
materials and high-performance electronics, re‐
quires suitable maintenance and repair work.
The manufacturer of the vehicle recommends
that you entrust corresponding procedures to a
BMW dealer’s service center. If you choose to
use another service facility, BMW recommends
use of a facility that performs work, for instance
maintenance and repair, according to BMW
specifications with properly trained personnel, re‐
ferred to in this Owner's Manual as "another
qualified service center or repair shop".
If work is performed improperly, for instance
maintenance and repair, there is a risk of subse‐
quent damage and related safety risks.

sory products approved by BMW.
Approved parts and accessories, and advice on
their use and installation are available from a
BMW dealer's service center.

BMW does not evaluate whether each individual
product from another manufacturer can be used
with BMW vehicles without presenting a safety
hazard, even if a country-specific official approval
was issued. BMW does not evaluate whether
these products are suitable for BMW vehicles
under all usage conditions.
