Mods on a lease

I know that pretty much all of you that got an ST bought it instead of leasing it. I didn't really have a choice because I took my brother with me who is an expert at haggling sales people and that's why I got such a good price for mine. I would like to add some things such as wheels and a louder exhaust. I know people say as long as you can remove everything, it's ok. Is this true? I do plan on buying this car at the end of the lease (3 years) but I don't want to void the lease or anything if I take it to the dealership for service (not often)

No expert here, but your mods during a lease should probably work the same as if you purchased the car. What voids the warranty on a purchase at the dealer will void the warranty on a lease. It's when you turn it in that could cause a problem, but if you plan on buying the car after the lease, then it shouldn't be an issue. Do they even look at the car at the end of a lease if you want to purchase? I doubt it.

Now if there's something in the lease that says you can't mod the car at all during the lease that's a different beast all together. Would have been prudent to ask when you signed the lease I guess.

I'm surprised there's not more Ford sales people on this site. On some Mini sites, there are sales people that post and sell to tons of members. They get a great online rep with happy customers and then have easy online sales. Many fly into their dealerships in fact. Don't see that here.
