    Hello

    I finally got one I've been a Nissan se-r Spec V owner for two years now and finally made the switch to a blue '06 WRX (wagon). This car has always been my dream and I'm finally living it Anyways, just wanted to say hi and throw up some pics. Oh yea, is there a point of installing a turbo timer on a totally stock WRX? I'm not going to modify anything anytime soon but someone told me that I should put a turbo timer on it so the turbo cools down...
    One more question. How should I go about breaking this car in? I only have 300 miles on it so far and have been driving it really carefuly (_staying below 4,000 rpms,etc) with an occasional push to break it in at higher rpms. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

    Here's the pics:

    Nice car man. Welcome to the club. There are days that I wish I had gotten the wagon instead of the sedan.

    congrats on the new car, welcome.

    As far as break in goes, some swear by keeping it below 4 grand and others swear by driving it normally. Sounds like your break in thus far is doing well IMO. I beat my car during break in.

    and welcome to The Club!!!!

    Nice '06! Your break-in seems to be going well. It seems that the "break-in guidelines" vary from opinion to opinion, so I'd just take it a little easier for the first 500 miles.
