            Why would an exhaust and lowering void your diff warranty?

              go to another dealer or ask to speak with the area manager about it

                The exhaust wouldnt make no difference but lowering would. The driveshafts are acting more pressure directly onto the diff bearings thus kanckering them. So Vx are right for a change to say no.

                        Deffo get it looked at by another stealer. I have just had a complete new gearbox under warranty and I've also got an aftermarket exhaust and lowered suspension!

                        The warranty would only be voided on items that are directly and adversely influenced by the modification, and I can't see how either of your mods will influence the diff directly.
