Maybe someday we'll be able to have a thread relating to leasing without all the drivel about how "stupid" it is.

Modding a leased car is fine as long as it can be easily reverted back to stock and you're willing to do so at the end of the term. Just consider all the factors and do the math before you do so.
Big +1, exactly what I was going to say. Great advice.
