    Well if you're car is a 53 plate surely you don't have no worry issues? Unless you're talking paintwork warranty, in which case I doubt Audi will worry about wheels.

    I imagine some dealers will have a problem with it, if for example you suffered a shock absorber failure then they might be funny about lowering springs. However if your warranty issue is not suspension related then I cant see it being a problem.

    I wouldnt say a word, chances of them noticing are pretty slim I would think!

    Well I have changed my wheels+ lowered and mine has another year and a half's warranty. I think you don't have to worry about it as say something goes wrong with your engine, they can hardly turn round and tell you to bog off because your car was lowered, it has nothing to do with it.

    Your insurance company will probably want to know though!

    Wouldn't it be easier just to ask the warranty company instead? :ermm:
