you can do whatever you want, as long as it is returned in original condition. no drilling holes, unless you're going to replace the piece with a new one. no permanent glues or anything that's going to damage the finish. when i had a lease i added a remote start to it and that wasn't a problem because it didn't change the appearance or operation of the car, and it added value.

You can't. A lease is just that a lease . You do not own it and if you make any changes thy can not only cancel the lease but sue you for any damage you do to the car.Either buy it outright or end the lease.

i dont think you should mod a lease... unless you want to go through the trouble of removing all the mods again at the end of your lease because you will eventually have to return it... i wouldnt do it... how ever if you want to got through the trouble of removing it i wouldnt do too many major mods, maybe coilovers and keep your normal suspension so u can put it bak at the end, rims, exhaust, u know, the basics... you shoudlve that about that before you decided to go with a lease though because normally if your gonna mod a car, your gonna have it 4 a while... good luck...

Anything you do HAS to be totally reversible and not alter vehicle permanently. I would avoid performance things, especially engine mods on a lease...you don't want to start screwing with the engine on a lease. If you want to mod a car, don't lease, buy.

Keep all the original parts . Before returning the car at the end of the lease just replace them to the original shape and specifications and take out out whatever you add on visually. I wouldn't change the color of the car though b/c it's going to cost you some buck$ to repaint to its original color.

don't mod your lease car, useless... waste your time and money.
Keep all the original part that removed from your car. Avoid touch on engine if you don't have the knowledge to do so.
