Searches for new physics beyond the Standard Model are the focus of the upcoming LHC runs. Quantum interference effects induced by the presence of modified Standard Model interactions or the presence of new degrees of freedom provide a guideline for such analyses. I will discuss examples of how to improve and complement current measurement strategies through exploiting new analysis techniques and BSM interference effects. The described programme not only provides an opportunity to phenomenologically gain insights into the mechanism of electroweak symmetry breaking itself, but also allows to establish a ”no-hide” theorem for tuned extensions of the SM using precision measurements.
