Greetings fellow WRX Owners!
Took delivery of my 2013 WR Blue WRX Premium with NAV last Friday 11/2/12. Have about 200 miles on it.
What a difference between my 2005 WRX Premium in all ways! Great World Rally Blue color!
Some questions and observations:
Car is garage kept, in the morning, when driving down my 190 foot driving and tapping the breaks to slow down, the past five days, they catch and grind
-This is the only time it happens: going from a 50 degree garage to whatever the outside temp may be, normal?
The Radio fades in and out with a lot of volume variance in the AM channels, especially when set to 880 (WCBS in NY)
-Anyone else have this issue and if so, what is the fix or how do you reboot or update the radio system in the NAV unit
In Phone Mode, I can't cycle through my contact list, using the down/up arrow for names by their alpha character, or the 'master' down/up button
-Once again, anyone else have this issue...maybe it's my Blackberry that doesn't interface to unit's Bluetooth too good?
-Will they really suck on dry roads below 32 degrees...and be even worse on snow/slush roads? (Forget Ice, won't even try)
-Drove it today when it was between 29 and 35 degrees out to work, and they were making some weird noises, but felt like they had good traction
Break in RPMs
-I like to break my in Subies (this is my 3rd Turbo)the way I'm gonna drive them without abusing it while new. OK for the first 500 miles to occasionally hit 4000-4500 RPM in 2nd through 5th?
First Oil Change
-Can I stretch it to 3000 miles or do it around 1500 (I know, I should have searched this forum on that question...still feeling my way around here, sorry)
-WRX hasn't been rained on yet. Use a California Dust Brush to clean the dust off, then a soft cotton tee-shirt cleaning with Meguiar's Ultimate Quik Detailer Spray...any tips on another way to keep the WRX looking like that showroom sheen, before it's first wash?
So much enjoying the WRX, trying not to drive it like I stole it...thanks in advance for your feedback
