I just purchased my 2005 base Silverstone 350z about 3 days ago from Baker-Jackson in Houston. My Salesperson said it would be a really good idea to purchase extended warranty, so i did. I Purchased the GOLD pkg. 7years and i think 70000 miles. After the purchase i realized that bodykits and aftermakret stuff would not be covered. So i decided to give them a call. They told me that only bodykits installed by Nissan will be covered by the warranty, but then again not all of them. I Just need some help on which bodykits / aftermarket stuff would be covered by my warranty?

In the meantime i will definately upload some pictures of my Z, as soon as i purchase a digi cam.


Thanks,
Rohan

what warranty do you mean? i dont think nissan really warranties body damage so a body kit will not void your warranty..

body kits have nothing to do with the engine/electrical system/etc..

The lady who sold me the warranty said its bumper to bumper warranty. i spent about $1800 for it. she said if there is any kind of damage including paint , rock chips, to bring it over 2 them and they will get it fixed. thats why i called to find out. and she said that adding any body kit besides nismo, Nissan would have to take a look at it and if its ok, they would have to install it. I dont know how much of this is bullsh"t but im telling you exactly what she told me. This is my first car ever. I am really new to all this. So please let me know is this is true or not.....

A body kit will not void any warranty.. I know people have been complaining about rock chips since the first 350z was sold a few years ago. This is the first thing I have hear regarding any dealer willing to fix body work ?

Obviously they want you to buy Nismo because they will get even more money from you.

I would try and talk to people in your area and see what the deal is on that dealership.. Something doesnt sound right.

Basically, if a part you install gets damaged, they won't fix it for free. And if you installing the part damages something else, they won't fix it for free.

sound like bs, and rock chips you say? if that was the case i would have had my car painted about 57 times by now. do yourself a favor and read over your warranty info.

I have the 7-year/100k mile warranty and it does not cover body damage or paint chips. I wish!

Get whatever body kit you want....it won't void your warranty at all.
