Just got home with my baby! Its almost like having a brand new car all over again. Didn't realize how much more I prefer my black 5MT hatch over the silver 4-door auto loaner I had until driving home.
First impressions: Everything seems A-OK! It all looks, sounds and feels good. Only time will tell if its still going to consume oil, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Going to find a level spot to park and note the oil level right now. I'll be keeping a very close eye on it for a while. I'll keep everyone posted .
