Default Who's had NO problems with their STI?

There are soo many posts about different problems i thought it would be nice to see how many with '08-'09 STI's have had virtually NO problems with their STI's and what mileage you are currently at.

Positive post alert

No problems and now at 15000kms. Last 3000kms in the cold and snow. Reflash at 5000kms. Synthetic at 14000kms. Magnetic oil pan plug clean. No mods except rally armour flaps and winter wheels and tires. Burns very little oil - less than normal.

Medium (strong) breakin with a few hard runs here and there in S# but tried not to run at one rpm (up to 5500) too long. Hit redline a few times before reflash without knowing this was a bad thing to do. I'm adding this because all I read here is that my car should have blown up by now with a break in that seen boost and S#. Well it hasn't and I believe I did it right! It runs perfect though I had to reset the ECU once because of poor performance after the reflash.

all systems go....
2400 miles on it and mechanically the car has been great.

I went through a few weeks where I was disappointed with the overall performance/power of the car but a Perrin Stage 1 tune changed all of that and fast. the car is much much stronger with this tune and the boost really kicks hard at 3000 rpm and pulls HARD all the way through the rev range in every gear.

so, Apart from the lame stock tune we all got my 08 has been great.

-minimal whining on the cold mornings
-great feel through the transmission
-love the brakes
-interior has held up very well to the challenges my 2 year old gives it.

Even my OBP paint has held up well through the Colorado winter.

14 000km, and only a visit to the dealer for the reflash and a NAVI issue.

Everything else is perfect.

*knocks on wood*

no issues as of yet.

over 100 runs down the 1320, stg 1 and 2, 12 autox events and 4 rallyx events, sitting at 10,500 miles. I broke the car in properly the first 1000 miles, no boost, put it in "i" mode (lame but glad I did it now), shifted about 3500-3800 RPMs. As soon as I hit 1000 miles, AP went on so I really didn't have the issues with the stock tune. Been beating on the car ever since, but all regular and suggested maintenance is done to the car. will be switching to full syn oils, fluid flushes, etc next month when my oil change is due.

Little over 9000 miles. Not a single mechanical glitch. 2 track days last year 3-4 planned for 2009. Downpipe and a protune. Thing is a beast!!!
