Bought a silver 06 today. Any tips on breaking it in?

HEY!! Another fellow Sebastopolian! :D

Take it easy the first 1000 miles, don't rev it over 4k if you can restrain yourself. Vary your speeds, i.e. don't take a 8hr. road trip with the cruise control on.

You may also want to change the oil after the break-in period. Subaru says it's not necessary, but I did it anyways to get rid of any metal shavings etc.

Enjoy your ride, hope to see you around town.

Oh yeah...one more thing. I do make deliveries to people in town who purchase their parts from my dealership.

Either find one here used, or come on down and see me. 10% off retail for our forum members...

...and free delivery for you.

Just let me know if you have a sunroof or not.
