I don't think I would try it...

esp if i didn't plan on buying it. Somethin like a CAI would be much more plausible than exhaust. No way I would put exhaust on a leased car, even if they told me i could and I planned on buyin it.

None.

All leasing a car does it allow a dealership to sell the same car twice.

you can do all the mods you want, as long as when you have to give the car back, you can take those mods off and put the stock ones back on. i knew a guy with a leased RSX-S, he did all the bolt-on mods he could, then when it was time for him to give it up, he took them off and put it back to stock. they never knew the difference.

so if you plan on doing an exhaust, have it to where you can unbolt it yourself and put the stock one back on. or an intake, make sure you can put the stock one back in when time comes. make sure all mods are fully reversible. and you should be good.

oh and that guy also blew his RSX engine 2 months into the lease, so we had to take all his crap off and return it to stock, then take it to the dealership and they put a new engine in it, and it cost him nothing because its under lease. but once we got the car back, all mods went back into it and we were racing **** later that night.

I also have a question... What do you do with the used mods once you give the car back?

i dont think he ever went to the dealer tune ups, he prolly just told him he did it himself. yeah and after he gave them the RSX back, he bought a 93 RX7 TT for about 18,000. that thing is stupid fast, but he blew the engine last time i talked to him.
