may I add one more...

Does dealer really need "social security ##" even when making lump sum complete payment ?

It may seem the least important matter when making deal. But, I had pretty annoying experience right after I purchased my last vehicle. Sudden increase of tele-marketting calls, a lot of mails and calls from all kinds of brand dealers, credit card application calls and mails from various major and minor brand names... maybe it is just coincidence?

Yes, Dealers are looked at as Financial Institutions now because of the large sums of money that change hands.

We need your personal info to run your OFAC and prove identity. It's for your safety and ours.

I'd say the calls were a coincidence.

This isn't exactly a sales question, but you might be able to shed some light on this. I usually take my 08 WRX to another local dealer for service (who has been great to work with so far). My car is lightly modified with a turboback exhaust (with Cobb turbo heat shield) and an Accessport. After the last trip, they included a log of all my mods on the service report. This is fine, as my car is now outside of its warranty, but they never did that during previous visits with the same mods. However, they listed that I had an aftermarket turbo on the car, while the car still has the stock TD04 that it came with. I installed the turboback exhaust myself and verified this while the downpipe was off the car. Maybe the heat shield threw them off?

I'm not concerned about the dealer trying to hold out on any possible future warranty work for me, but I am curious as to what would happen if the dealer flagged a car as having aftermarket parts that it has never had. What if this had happened to another owner who was still within the warranty window?

This always comes down to how the respective dealer treats modded cars.

The general rule is that you will need to trace a failure back to a mod to deny warranty.

Meaning that if I add a TBE and no tune - The engine pops. It's on you.
But if I add an aftermarket stereo or other - The wheel bearing fails. It's on us.

It usually is a common sense kind of thing but I have heard of many dealers denying warranty work because the car had X part even though the failure was for Y part.

Your shop could just be trying to be thorough in respect to your car by documenting how the car is set-up. But I can't say what or why they are doing that.
