Ummm won't you need to revert the car back to stock after the lease is over?

Strongly recommended, as the parts invested on would be a waste, as the dealership gives you nothing for them when you turn the leased vehicle back in.

Even when I buy a vehicle and mod it, I make every attempt to keep the stock part, as I'll put the stock part back on when I go to sell the vehicle. Very rarely does anyone want a set of stock axle back exhausts, or a stock air box. They will however be interested in a used CAI or axle back exhaust sytem, so you can make a few extra bucks there towards the new mods for the new vehicle you buy.

just keep the original parts and put it back to stock at the end
then you can have a list of parts to sell as well and recoop some money back
many folks do it all the time, especially with the highline cars

I wouldn't do it. If you end up breaking something, you'll have to buy the car.

Also, check your lease agreement. It may actually say that you can't mod it.

Don't lease, if you've done it already... Don't do it again lol.
Just buy the car. Even though 99.8% of all cars depreciate in value, I would rather spend 26k, and own something worth 12k, than spend 12k and own nothing.

When you go trade in a car you own, you don't have to tack on what you owe to your next purchase, and furthermore no one charging you for each mile you've gone over the leased agreement amount.

Joyriding? on a lease? Twice as expensive.

my02...

And if none of that takes hold and you still lease and wish to mod.

SAVE YOUR STOCK PARTS. Regardless what the dealership tells you about it, it's their car, and you're borrowing it. They will want it exactly as it was loaned, or financial compensation if that is not possible.

very true. I would consider what your residual will be on the car if you decide to purchase at the end of the lease. It's only 2-3 years, so I personally wouldn't mod it.

If that happens, let them know they can keep it and buy the 2016, or 2017 depending on how long your lease is. Cars will only get better over time.
