|Ausv7||lmao no. if you do anything to your suspension, intake, and exhaust your warranties will not be voided. those kind of parts do not touch it. but any kind of boost, internal work, or body work will void warranties but if installed by the dealer, they give you a 12 month 12,000 mile warranty. Also it must be a ford approved part.|

|FocusFreak09||so if you get your suspension installed by the dealer they put warranty on that plus the factory warrranty wwont be voided since your messing with suspension?|

|Ausv7||Thats what i mean. i'm not saying minor mods because intake and exhaust plus suspension doesn't touch you warranty. Anything else can though. thats the bad part. but all the simple stuff doesn't. just warning you. they changed their rules on certian stuff but the rest will void it but like i said they give you a warranty on top of the part if installed by the dealer like boost or internal parts.|

|Blue5ive||Exactly. Dealerships will say this and try to bully and bs you cuz they figure they're in control. Went down that route when i had a honda. Tried to say my cat back exhaust and intake voided my warranty when i had a cylinder go out. Said the mods caused it so they didn't have to cover it. They changed their tune when they got notice i was sueing them. Replaced engine and it was all covered. Now if you tear into the engine, boost or nitrous that's diff.|

they would have to PROVE beyond a doubt that the aftermarket part you install caused the specific failure.
been down this road before with a dealership. moss-magnuson act is your friend.
federal law trumps "talking to a dealership" about this.

Nice glad to see another 3rd gen on here. I got the 2012 focus hatch tuxedo black se model manual with the sport package. I can to find out sport package is basiclly the same but no 18's included like the titanium. :]]] I must ask did you get the titanium sport package????
Plus im with you there looking for mods. None out yet plus i work with ford racing. Just an fyi though. Most mods you buy if not bought through the dealer and installed by them will void all your warranties even if you have an extended warranty. If installed by the dealer you get a 12 month 12,000 mile warranty but all your other one's will still be voided. just an fyi. Cause don't want you to damage your car and then have nothing cause some mod blew your engine and your warranties void. If anyone tells you different. they haven't talked to a dealership about this in a while cause i asked last week and thats what they are saying.

It would perform better and go faster if it was in my driveway. Hahahaha.
As said no U.S. mods i've seen but the car has been out in Europe for a year or so and there are a few sites with different power upgrades. Pretty pricey and shipping would be killer but it can't hurt to look to get ideas. Btw welcome to the forum.
