If done correctly (no flashing of the ECU or anything), there would be no way for BMW to find out unless they were intentionally checking for it which is extremely unlikely or they actually drove it past 80.

They would only deny a warranty claim if they can prove the issue on the claim was due to the fact that disabling the beeps caused the issue, which if the coding is done right, would not affect anything.

BMW owners can lower the gong somewhat though:

You can turn down the volume of the gong to the minimum and it will show that in settings yet the mandatory speed chime still goes on at the same volume unfortunately. This control handles the other gongs from what I can see.

Went to try out in between my calls, and glad to say that (in my 2020 G20 at least) the speed warning DOES dramatically reduce

In my car, the gong still remains noticeably louder than the other gongs.

Might be a different implementation in different platforms and software revision

MQB AO IN

not possible at dealers, possible after market. Warranty, same logic as quoted.

Obviously no dealer can do it, for obvious legal reasons. There's plenty of contact info on this thread where and how to get it done.
