Awesome feedback guys

I was thinking it might also be interesting to post what octane fuel you are running.

10,000 miles, no major issues. Wear and tear on the interior only issues. Cobb Stage 2 for about the last 6K, stage 1 for the last 9K.

09, 1700kms, completed break in, full synethic royal purple 5w30 just added. Hesitation and stumble around 4-5400rpm when full throttle is applied. AP should be stock with this car ...The tune with these cars is not considered a "problem" anymore if no one decides to fix it.

Now, my input:

No major problems @ ~6000 miles.
  • Synthetic Royal Purple since 1300miles.
  • Recall reflash after 2 weeks of ownership.
  • Stage 1 a month-ish later.
  • Protune stage 2 @ around 3300miles -> ~6000miles.

Minor issues:
  • One rock chip on the front of the hood.
  • An idiot directed me into a curb and nicked 1 rim.
  • Car refused to start today b/c of the insane cold the first attempt. 2nd try worked but it struggled, I pressed the accelerator down a bit to get it going.
  • Squeaky trunk cover. Solution=remove it b/c I don't use it.
  • Inside door material likes to get marks... from EVERYTHING including your knuckles.
Thanks for the info, I think i remember reading that now in another thread but I will try it tomorrow for sure
