Hey all, just signed up for the site. Graduated college this May and got myself a nice little job. For the last year I've been drooling over the STi, and now I finally have a means to get it. As the first present to myself - a shiny new 2006 WRX STi. It comes in tomorrow! I'm psyched, to say the least. Negotiated a great deal, and went for the Blue with Silver rims.
Can anyone give me advice on the break-in period? I know the traditional approach, but I've also heard about different approaches using spurts of higher RPM ranges, producing a better seal on the piston rings. I'm skeptical to say the least, but what's the best break-in method for the STi?
No upgrades yet, obviously, but my next purchase is probably going to be a radar detector to avoid those pesky tickets. Looking at the Bel RX65 and the Escort 8500 X50. Opinions? I would like to go for the Bel RX75 as it's a concealed unit, but it doesn't do anything for POP radar.
Glad to be here, and look forward to meeting up with some of you and checking out your cars. I'll post pics once I take possession.
