    Congratulations. The smell is quite normal. Not sure if it is your clutch.

    My new car had all sorts of burning smells for the first few days. Wasn't the clutch for sure.

    Re: Hi Everybody!

    Thanks for the kind words everybody. I forgot that a new clutch might burn a little to break in. My first ever "new" car so it's all quite different.

    Welcome, smell is normal, I'd say its a mixture of clutch and other parts getting warm. I always thought a new exhaust smelled funny the first few times it ran.

    Just ordered my winter tires from tirerack. Got the 16" steelies and Michelin X-Ice Xi3. Should be here by Monday. I won't even be mad if we don't get any more snow for the season, I'l just have them for next year. I will be mad because I won't be able to go do subie things in the snow though

    Oh and my Rally Armor mud flaps came in the mail today. Installing them this weekend. Should be good fun after the tires come in and we get some snow around here again.

    No offense, but, Never burnt the clutch? C'mon man, even Ken Block crashes sometimes!
