What modifications will effect the factory and/or purchased extended warranties (if any)?

Can any of these mods void factory warranty?

Debading
Tinting windows
Powder coat factory wheels
Painting the car different color
Install different remote car starter
Install better a navigation/stereo center
Removing the "governor" (do WK2 even have a governor on?)

I would guess no across the board on voiding the warranty. Unless the paint or powdering coating affects something somhow? Like a wheel and tire warranty or Something like that?

SRTs are not governed. Top it out!

Debading--NO,BUT IF U CHIPPED PAINT & IT PEELS LATER(VOID)
Tinting windows-NOT LIKELY
Powder coat factory wheels-YES, KISS THE WARRANTY ON THE WHEELS GOOD BYE!
Painting the car different color-YES,PAINT & ANY COROSION WARRANTY IS BYE BYE!
Install different remote car starter-YES, IF IT CAUSES ANY FUTURE ELECTRICAL PROBLEM!
Install better a navigation/stereo center-UNLESS OEM,MOST LIKELYSAME AS ABOVE!
Removing the "governor" (do WK2 even have a governor on?)
-NOT SURE ON WK2BUT IF THEY CAN TELL ITS BEEN REMOVED & IT CAUSED A PROBLEM THEN (VOID)



Hope this Helps.

I agree with everything except rims don't have a warranty powder coated or not
Actually there is a tire and wheel warranty sold seperately from the standard warranty, probably is the best purchase you can make for this vehicle. Tires cost about $500 each and rims are $1300 each to replace!:eek: For $350, i am fully covered for 4 years. If the wife hits a curb and the wheel gets rim rash or the tire is damaged, you get full replacement.:)

P.S. I don't think anything else mentioned in OP will void the warranty. But as for King's CAI and exhaust, well that's another story lol!:D

All depends on where your service is done. Almost all of your list is cosmetic. Will have nothing to do with warranty. You put a new radio in....its not covered, but no effect on anything else. You can usually get away with CAI and exhaust just about anywhere.
