    The mirrors, the lack of fogs and/or STI stickers/emblems, the seats, the wheels, the brakes, etc.

    As far as break-in, check out the manual. In addition to not taking it over 4000 RPM and no WOT before 1000 miles, I also changed the oil at ~600 and 1600 miles. Some will argue that its unnecessary to do so, but I've done it with each of my new cars and built engines over the years. It hasn't failed me yet and its cheap insurance.

    Frequent oil changes early on are usually reserved for rebuilt engines due to common machining practices, or back in the days when you had the possibility of sand coming out of the cast iron castings. But, I also have no clue what went on a Subaru, so I adhere to the frequent schedule.

    Other than that, make sure you don't lug the engine (aka, try driving in a gear too high for your speed/grade), take it easy on it, and try to vary your highway speeds whenever possible.
