yeah, you're right it does make it a cop magnet. Maybe when I calm down after a few years (this car is too much fun to drive), then i can add rally stripes :)

Elizabeth For installing third party items some dealers will some will not.
Depends on the dealer.
As for buying a car one place and taking it to another... I have done that no problem.
Usually it is because the preferred dealer did not have the car i wanted in stock.
The service dept does not care where you bought it!

Only if that selling dealer had a 'free loaner for service with new purchase' when servicing.. then only that selling dealer would give you the free loaner. Or other freebies.. like free oil changes.. etc. That is a dealer thing. and no other dealer is going to honor it.

mishka I care a lot about my car... i'm sortof obsessed haha. Today I signed up for SYNC Owner and ran my first vehicle health report - everything okay! (I've driven 3,000 miles since I got the car on Dec. 15, and have not yet changed the oil) - I intend to change oil this weekend.)

Will the dealers install third-party parts, accessories, and/or graphics/decals? For example. Or will they only install Ford/OEM things? Speaking of which, does OEM (original equipment manufacturer) imply Ford? (Ford=OEM?)

Thanks.

bringler26 No worries. Its good that you care enough. Of your car to even think about that.

mishka Sigh, thanks. I wish I had asked before driving 30 mins to the dealership in MD just for them to say everything's okay - i feel dumb. On the bright side everything's okay.

1slofofo Of course. I go to a 5 minute from me dealership for everything now. I got my tsbs done there, too. I'm not gonna go out of my way to the farther one. They have all the info, anyways.

Preferred Dealership

Hey all,
I purchased my vehicle in a dealership in MD about 30 minutes away. Do I have to go to them to get my car checked, or anything else for that matter, which is okay to get checked under warranty?
Can I go to any dealership (closest) and they will treat me the same even though I purchased elsewhere?

I need an oil change and maybe to see if they could install my rear mudflaps for me.

Thanks.
