Supposed to be picking up an '06 WRX wagon in two weeks. Can you provide me with general break-in period recommendations ? From what I gather, the first 1000 miles...no going over 3000rpm. Then what ? Any special considerations due to the turbocharged engine ? Should I be using synthetic oil ?
Also, can anyone recommend some very subtle improvements for the car ? I'm sorry to disappoint the hard core guys (which appears to be a great many of you), but this little wagon is just going to be my daily commuter...with kids...and occasionally my dog in the back. I will give it a spritied drive once in a while (when I’m in it alone) so I thought it might be fun in a few months to do something like K&N filters, spark plug wires, etc. Just minor stuff to add to the fun. Is there a no-brainer upgrade that many WRX owners do very quickly ?
Thanks in advance !!
