Default Oldsmobile Alero

I'm getting a 4 door 02 Alero tomorrow, its dark bronze, fairly loaded, and has the 3.4L V6 pushrod..the way i like em. Anyways, a few questions:
Will my MSD coil packs and 8.5mm wires work on this car, i have them just sitting here, so I might as well...
Im looking forward to having a car with 3 years extended warranty, and 49,000 KMS on the clock. I haven't drove it yet either. But its already bought, $377.00/month. As far as I know, it was a lease buy back. Very clean car, and fully inspected.

Ouch!!! A girl I work with just bought a new one of those (about 8 months ago anyhow). She had $2k (US) to put down on it and her payments are only $209 (US or about $290-300 CAN). It'* also a fully loaded with the 16" rims, sunroof, cass/cd, spoiler, ground effects, and the 3400. She'* considering getting the extended warranty (to 100,000 miles versus the standard 3/36), and even then it'll only up her monthly payments by like $10-15.

Parts CANNOT legally void your full warranty in the US. They are not covered under warranty, and any failures directly caused by them are not covered. Coil packs will be fine, wires will be long for the rear banks i bet.

I'll use the short ones for the rears
and possibly more spacers, make it look good.
PS. No shop will see the car unless it needs work. I do all my own maintence.
