Since i am leasing a car how much modifications can i make to it? Will i be able to add stuff to it and take it away later when the lease is up?
they may not have been leased. you can *trade* a car that's modded, but you'll still take a hit on trade-in (in most cases). i say "most" b/c my acura dealer gave me an extra $1k to leave my yakima roof rack on my SVT contour (even though it only cost half that when i bought it 7-8 years ago), and my ford dealer gave me an extra $1k to leave my 16" kosei racing seneka's and my in-dash CD HU in my civic when i traded it on my SVT. but, by and large, you won't see any benefit to a modded car when you trade it and you'll probably take a hit. a lease is a little different, though. the leasing company (honda finance in my case) sends a packet w/ a little checklist that they'll use when you turn the car in, and it even goes into such detail as classifying sizes of dings and dents (and how many you can have per panel before they charge you), how much treadlife the tires must have remaining, etc. they get kind of anal, in other words.LeaD_FooT said:g.smurf:
That's good info to know, I didn't think the cars were always taken back to stock, Some acura dealers where I live sell used integras that appear to be modified, but maybe that's different.
some bose systems are adequate (my personal opinion is that NONE are truly exceptional), and some are not. the type-S system falls far short of even adequacy for anyone who cares about the sound quality. at low volumes, it's adequate, i guess...but crank it, and it just doesn't have the guts to keep up. for starters, the 'rich-bass woofer' in the spare tire well might as well not be there - it can't even begin to compare with an aftermarket sub and amp. i have a sub in my home theater that will shake my house, and i've had subs in my last two cars before this one. thus, i'm kind of spoiled. for someone who's not into car audio or someone who just doesn't prioritize car audio, the bose type-S system may be fine. for anyone who wants to feel the base and turn the volume up above a quarter-turn, then the system needs to be upgraded. hence, my efforts in this area.
Also, Why do all people that have a type-S want to remove the bose system, I understand people like me would want to remove the basic system, but I thought bose was a good system. My other car is a CL type S and it also has a bose system, It sounds really good to me and has more than enough bass, What was your reason for replacing it on the rsx?
