Now that i was financially able to purchase a new car i thought why not. I have come to this forum to get help and ask questions to those who I assume know about these types of cars. I want to protect my car.
Kiddies make sure you follow your user manuals to a tee or you could hurt your car.....
Look I agree take it slow and easy but I also think for the first 100 or so miles, what was helpful in that link is the importance of running hard only when the engine is at operating temp.. this is a forum and we all have are opinions to share.... Sorry for posting the "retarded" link.
Have fun with the new car I'm on my second and loven every second of it!!!!!
And when you get out of the break in period I'd recommend not putting the car through the paces until it has reached proper operating temperatures.
Good choice on the silver... I live in Canada and made the mistake of buying a black soob... oh man, what a mess and a challenge to keep clean with the road salt and winter driving....
I just traded my '05 vette in for an '11 STI - I am super satisfied - it is a fantastic car and you'll have a lot of fun with it. As far as the thunk - with some practice you'll learn the car and shift more smoothly. As far as break in - I'd say trust the manual. It is hard to do, I would say I was not perfect, but do your best to follow the rules and I am sure you'll have the car a long time. Do something else and it is a risk to the longivity of the car.
