    Just dropping by to congratulate you on a good deal . I purchased my WRX from Michael Hohl Subaru south in Carson City. Got a great deal from there.

    Calvin is correct. The break-in period is 1000 miles while varying speed along the way(Should make for an interesting highway driving).

    Seems like there's a lot people from Reno in this thread lol. It's a pretty rare occurrence here.

    Whew! I was just making sure I wasn't the recipient of that esteemed award. I DID decide to have a little Irish whiskey tonight right about when I read that, so I knew my brain should not be trusted

    Good to know it still worked even with all that peat in it! And good to know I may have helped you not break in your car incorrectly!

    Thanks for all your support! When I get the details nailed down for the car maybe the Reno area folks would like to get together for a meet or lunch/dinner or Shady Lady Or if I schedule the pick up date on a weekend then maybe a mod day? I'm not sure I'm gonna do too many mods to the car. Been thinking about installing some led interior floor lights and possibly installing Led's in the cup holders(single led) and one on the door handle. I could even get a group buy on Led's if that's something some of you might be interested in. I can post this kind of stuff on the mods forum though so we don't have posts all over the place. You guys have great weekend!
