    Hey - Did you buy that one from Capitol Subaru in SJ last Sunday? I went to their website on Sunday afternoon. It listed a gray 5 door WRX I wanted. Called them, and Mike Schwartz told me it just sold. Damn Well, if things go well I'll be picking up my pearl blue 5 door WRX from Carlsen Subaru later this week. I had a hard time deciding between the GTI and the WRX. The WRX just has more magic, and you can't beat the AWD.

    Anyway, Congrats on your new car!!!! I'll do a proper intro once I have picked up mine.

    Thomas

    According to the owner's manual, keep the rpm's below 4k until at least 1000 miles. Only exceed if necessary in emergency situations.

    I have always tried to do a low rpm break in on my new cars but i never seem to stick to it and I have a friend that has drove every car that he has owned like a crazy person and has never had any problem hell I think he was shifting at red line with his 09 wrx when he was leaving the dealership and now has almost 30k miles on it with no problems. So I think it all up to how good your maintance is on oil changes and servicing your car.

    Nice whips! 30k isnt alot of miles. I had an 08 pontiac g5 i picked up with 34 miles... Beat the snot out of it and got rid of it at 48k. Dont worry i didnt sell it to some poor soul. It got repo'd lol fail. As far as problems with the car i had many prolems however they were all non driver related. Such as vacuum leaks and electrical problems from the day i picked up the car and gm wouldnt honor my warranty... A week after i bought the car. This is the reason i will never own a new gm again.
