Wait until you hit 3000-4000 miles, then your car will really be broken in . . . you'll see what I mean, all of a sudden your car will get quicker !!

Just turned over 4100 mi here. I was thinking this on the drive home yesterday, doggone if this isn't well broken in. No rattles, no problems, no hassles. Fits like a glove. :thumb: The fun factor is one twisty curve and an accelerator punch away. :D

I totally agree. When I turned 10,000km, things changed. On slightly cold, damp days, my car runs like a dream ... I think the turbo likes dense air. :D

And it ends with the first door ding!
7 months of ownership and not a single door ding. However, I am willing to walk 500m to avoid other parked cars in a parking lot. :confused:

If I do park next to someone - or find that they have parked next to me after I have left the car - I do check. It has to be a sickness ...

Needless to say, when THAT day comes, I will probably blow a main artery. :mad:

Until that day ... happy motoring!

I've heard this from several people. Is this true? What's the mechanical basis for it?

I enjoy parking 500 m from wherever, In the middle of nowhere and you come back and a piece of junk is parked right beside you. Just you and them. They do it on [email protected]@rds! :mad:

lol . . . I know that feeling only too well :) :) . . . sometimes I will try to open the doors with the remote so that I am hoping the person who parked next to me will realize I am coming to my car and they will be more careful.

It is very true . . . I noticed my car got quicker and seemed to work better at 3000 miles, then again at 7000 miles and then again at 12,000 miles . . . it's pretty cool
