    I have a leased car, and installed a sub and amp myself. Part of the lease agreement involves getting the car serviced regularly. Do I need to remove the sub and amp before handing over to BMW?

    My worry is that they will notify the leasing company and void warranty. Although I don't think it should count as a vehicle mod because it in no way affects the driving. The only grey area is that its connected to the car battery.

    As long as you haven't changed anything from standard (i.e. removed speakers to replace with new ones) then you shouldn't have a problem. I highly doubt BMW even know that it's a leased vehicle unless you leased it directly from them - even then, I doubt they'd care; they don't know what your lease agreement stipulates.

    How did you install it? As long as you didn't damage, cut, or remove anything original to the car then I can't see it being a problem. Just remove it and return the sound system to stock before giving it back at the end of your lease.

    I'm looking to get a car soon and would have did the exact same thing as you, and probably still will do. Phone up BMW and ask and post what they said on here because I'm curious to know what they'd say.
