    First 1K go easy. Dont go above 4500 rpm. May want to do an oil change at 1k. Opinions differ. Let turbo cool down for a minute or two at idle after a decent drive. I have the CVT model so my break in may be slightly different

    Congrats on the order. What color are you getting?

    I hadn't heard anything about letting the turbo cool down after a harder run. Won't it cool down if you turn the car off right away anyway? And is this just for the break-in period or for the life of the car?
    On order: 2015 WRX Premium CVT in WR Blue

    No you typically don't want to let the turbo just stop after being driven a while. Usually you'll want a turbo timer if you don't want to wait for the turbo to cool down...
    But I think it's not as necessary for water cooled turbos. Still a good idea to cool it down though
    Someone correct me if I'm wrong but that's the last I've heard...but from an old military friend who had a gti (another friend asked him why his car was still running after turning it off.)

    I picked up a 2015 off the lot just last night! Having a ball driving this thing. I can't wait to hit the 1K mark!

    Not really necessary.

    thanks for the imput. I have heard about letting the turbo cool. I really hate waiting. I orderd the lighting red manual base model. I never can keep anything stock for very long. guess we will see. I don't really want to void my warranty. but am waiting for cobb to make the accessport for the 2015

    The turbo cool is not needed if your turbo has a coolant jacket. Cool down is needed because turning a oil only turbo off will let oil sit in the turbo while it is still at peak operating temperatures. This causes the oil to burn and creates sludge as a result.

    As for warm up, it is necessary for all cars to reach operating temperature before heavy driving.
