Warning - you will love the Michelins so much that a week after install you will order the ESS unit. Regardless of which order you buy these or if you only buy one, you cannot go wrong as both are awesome products.
So I googled ESS flash and I see that it removes the limiter and improves performance. I have 2 questions:

Will this void my warranty in the US? I am leasing.
Is it worth the $800 USD?

It MAY very well void your warranty as to the affected engine and driveline components - this seems to be a dealer to dealer or situational call. So, if you buy it and burn up the turbos or trash the DCT, I think you should anticipate the warranty being denied.

If you are okay with above - yes, very well worth it.

I think if this is a concern for you (as it is for me) then don't modify the car. Keep it stock and drive it hard!
