: I love this car. I never thought I could enjoy driving a car so much. I have not had this much fun since I was 16.

: I really feel like the car is getting faster as it loosens up. I plan on changing the oil at 1200 miles right after break in b/c I have heard of an abundance of metal filings in the engine after break in. Anyone have any experience or suggestions in this regard?

: BTW still waiting on my front clears from Bekkers. The back and sides look great though.

I did my first oil change at 2000 kms. There were a number of small metalic pieces trapped in the filter. But only on the first ocasion. I checked 2 filters after that and found nothing. now I don't bother to look.

62,000 kms - running synthetic now, changing oul as per the lights (well maybe at 4-5 lights) and not using oil.
