Only if you drive it hard all the time, if the car was built on or after 8/27/13 it would already have the updated TSB motor mounts which are much stiffer than the original soft mounts specified by Ford of Europe.

I see all these cars got Tuner Scanners in it but doesnt it flash the ECU?
Modifications can only void a warranty IF something goes wrong and the dealership/Ford can prove that a modification caused the issue.

Some of that would be very safe to have like a filter and exhaust, so I'd go with those. With a tune though, they could probably cause some headaches for you should you try to get something repaired under warranty.

Not much. It's a tiny K03 turbo. The stock exhaust flows pretty good for it.

The car is fine the way it is.... until you get bit by the mod bug. :P
If you're looking for more power, pretty much all the bolt-ons (exhaust/intake, etc) don't have much effect unless you have it tuned. I suggest leaving it as-is until you get a better idea of what the car can do and go from there. Aside from that, perhaps cosmetic mods may get you by for the time being. :P
