but i will ask around before doing any MODs

i understand your checking the forums and thats great .
personally i dont trust a dealers word .
case in point ....
my friend of 12 years just purchased a 5er and the dealer told him his tv would have no problem towing it .
what the dealer failed to do is actually "look" at the tow vehicle and decide if it would .
tv was an f150 with 20 " wheels with no tow package which dropped his tow rating to almost close to the uvw because of the 20 " wheels .
the dealer just assumed that it was a standard f150. btw the wheels were factory installed and not rated for the weight he wanted to tow .
do your home work and youll be fine ! good luck
