Thanks - appreciate the tip - I'll baby it for a few miles for sure - I did take it out to about 5000 on the test drive pulling into the freeway, and took the S turn exit hard - very impressed at the balance..Congrats on the purchase and welcome to the Forum!!
Love the Plasma blue man, looks good. Get some more pics up though when the sun comes up
Just a quick tip, don't drive the car crazy in the first 1000 mile break-in period, though you should run it to 6500 rpms or so a few times during that period to properly seal the engine so it wont hurt it afterwards!
I realize the Camaro may have more legs - I look at both as two different cars - the cruiser (Camaro) and the spirited driving car (Sti) - if all else fails - we have a 2007 Jetta 2.0T with DSG that comes in handy for longer drives!You'll have to give a proper comparison after the break in is through. Especially since that camaro has 23 more hp than the STi
