Can You Install Lip Kit on A Leased Car?

i know it will be fine as long as you put the stock parts back when u return the car like aftermarket rims, exhausts, etc...
but what about add-on lip kits? i was thinking about getting either Hamann or ACS kit, but will dealer b*tch about the holes that got drilled during the installation underneath the original bumpers?
and anybody happens to know what material Hamann and ACS make their kits? poly urethane or fiberglass?
thanks in advance

They will take off lots of money if there are holes.

Why not spend some cash remodeling your apartment while your at it? I don't understand why anyone would dump cash into something they do not own.

yes. you can instal whatever you want on your leased car. and if you want the lip kit then do. dont let the whole "you shouldnt mod a leased car" thing bother you. my last car had lots of lots of mods done to it. about 12,000 dollars worth, and it was a leased car. everyone thought it was crazy. is it crazy to spend 12,000 dollars on a car? pretty much... does it matter if its leased or not? not really. bmw WILL PROBABLY charge you if there are holes, etc. my acura had a ruin floor board in the trunk. it was the only thing i couldnt fix myself. when they inspected the car after i took all 12,000 dollars worth of parts off, the only thing they mentions was i would have to pay 100 bucks for the carpet. haha. i thought i was making out like a bandit. but then when i got the final bill for over milage, the carpet piece wasnt even included. so do what you want to your car. when the lease is up, you can give them the piece you spent money on, or pull it off and sell it on here. just find out ABOUT how much you might have to spend because of any damages and make sure you are ok. you will also PROBABLY be able to find someone on here to swap out pieces to where you dont lose money

But Rolex is a bad comparison, they tend to retain their value over time.

If installing a lip makes you happy then do it. Lifes short.

with my car i traded a lot of pieces to stock parts. im not saying i didnt lose money, but i was able to give someone i "knew" an aftermarket part they wanted, and i was able to get their stock part to save me from PAYING money. so yes, i lost a little bit of money but not so much that it wasnt worth it. also, i went into modding my car knowing i was gonna take a little hit. so i wasnt disappointed.
