Lowering and warranty

Hi all,

Looking at getting the Giulietta lowered about 30-40mm as it just sits too high and a small drop like that should hopefully look original just more sporty.

Thinking of doing it on just springs? Anyone any experience with this?

Also on previous cars iv'e owned if i was to get it lowered the warranty would still stand for everything bar the suspension - does the same apply to an Alfa warranty?

Thanks
Lee

Doubt it, can imagine AR saying that because you lowered it stones will hit the paint more and any claim for stone chips will be turned down too

Discuss it with the dealer you purchased it from and get their decision in writing

Doubtful that it will influence warranty.
The only thing it affects is suspension and there you wont have warranty in 99% of all cases since it is wear and tear parts.

I lowerd mine with eibachs and had it done at the dealership. His only comment was that it looks great now.
