BuDDyLeE had a good idea, assuming that we get our STi's Spring 2003. Assuming.

After the break-in period, why not have one big meet-up, much like the various meets that take place in Europe? Although it would need to be a more concerted effort given the limited distribution of the STi compounding the effect of much lower population density, I think that many could/would make the journey.
I'm not suggesting even thinking about details at this point, but I'm wondering what the general attitude toward such a commmunity-type event would be...

I could set something up here in Denver. About as centrally located as you can get- and tons of canyons to carve... :smile:

I might even be interested in this. I am actually trying to think where I can drive my STi when I pick it up to break it in, cause it will be hard to commute on the expressways here in Chicago and keep it at a decent speed and under 4000k rpms. BTW, what is the recommended break in period? I am actually considering driving home to Michigan to visit family just to say hi and turn around and come back(600 miles round trip). I am also sure when this thing comes out everybody and their uncle will be trying to get me to race, it will be hard to ignore.

Break in is usually about 1500 miles at varying rpms/speeds (obviously not above the recommended limit).

youre not going to want to make that trip right away because it is also recommended that you don't break an engine in at a single speed. its hard on the highway with cruise control at your fingertips.

Yeah I thought about the highway speeds. I was actually thinking of taking mostly side roads that I know of, but forget the idea all together cause it would make the trip miserablly long. I would be better off just driving around Chicago and the burbs to break it in where I can more easily vary the speeds. I thought most new cars nowadays only need about 300 miles to break in. I also remember reading a lot on other Subaru forums about people taking about 1000 miles to break in their WRXs. I will probably do the 1000 mile break in cause that should be more than enough. It will be a long 1000 miles though. Actually, I wonder what it says in the manual. You lucky *******s out there with an STi, what does it say in your owner's manual about break in and what are you doing?

I agree with Candaman, when my Dad (I'm only 16) got his Outback, the dealer said to wait 3000 miles before using cruise control.
I'd be up for a meeting, although I don't know if I will be getting my STi in spring of 2003, I graduate then. But maybe the next year:p. If I can afford it.
