This is a discussion on Took delivery of my WRX tonight within the New Member Hangout forums, part of the Community - Meet other Enthusiasts category; It's my first brand new car, ordered it about 11 weeks ago, it's a 2014 DGM Impreza WRX. What's this ...
She's a Bewt! Keep it out of boost for 1K Miles for proper engine break-in. It's in the manual!
Thanks guys, I'm from the school of thought that believes that you should drive it hard from the beginning so the engine doesn't wind up being a pooch. I'm not going to be redlining it at every light, just driving it normal with some hard accelerating here and there. Different strokes for different folks though and not everyone will agree. Any recommendations on what hitch to get for this guy, I asked the dealer and they didn't have any but said I could get one anywhere and it wouldn't void my warranty. Just looking to add a "one up" brand bike rack so I don't have to throw the bikes in the back and possibly mess up the interior etc.

(BTW, your dealer doesn't know what he's talking about. And the dealer isn't the final word on warranty coverage...that belongs to SOA. I'd ask SOA before asking a dealer to confirm if you don't need to follow break in procedures that are in the manual...after all, their engineers wrote the manual, not the dealer.)
