How does this even make sense? If it was any bit detrimental to the car, SoA would not offer to have it as an option.

Hard break in's have been proven to provide the best ring seals, etc which can reduce oil consumption later in life.

I didn't mean to start an argument. My point was to follow what soa says for the car. That's all.

^ So that means next stop is the Davisville port, Right?
If so, then that's great news for all of us - SNE guys. I would love to find out my car is onboard.

Would you happen to know exactly what the port installed options are?

It's listed on their website.

That's pretty bold though, killing the warranty immediately upon receiving the car.

Decent car and a very short wait time.

Enjoy and keep an eye on the stock tune as COBB just released their map for 2013 Sti/WRX/FXT

It's on the way to Baltimore, so I don't believe it will turn back to Davisville or Boston.

You need to back and read more posts. We have been tracking this ship for weeks. It was just in NJ, before that Virginia, before that, FL, and before that squeezing through panama. We confirmed it skipped Baltimore on the way North.

It came though Panama, around the pan handle, stopped in Jacksonville, then the Norfolk port in Virginia, skipped Baltimore and was just unloading in NJ. The ship is moving north after each stop. As far as I know this the same path as the previous ships...with the exception of skipping a port for some reason.

Digitized check in here.

Ic, now it makes sense, I'm sorry, I should have checked first. So it left Norfolk Virginia, skipped Baltimore, unloaded in NY, now is doubling back for Baltimore.

It must turn north again after unloading in Baltimore, alot of SNE guys have port dates for the 6th, and have been told there cars are on the Meridian.

I wonder why it skipped Baltimore in the first place!

Got to get rid of that stock tune if it is as bad as everyone says.

Go to vesseltracker.com and sign up. Its free, once you do that go to the ship and hit alert options or something like that. It will send you an email every time it changes its destination or status. Beats going to marine traffic.com constantly imo

I was told my SOA a few weeks ago that my car was on the Meridian Ace and would be dropped off in Baltimore. They also gave me the VIN and told me to expect to be able to pick it up at my dealership in Cary, NC on 12/10. My salesman told me the other day that the car would be "released" on the 6th of this month (I asked if that meant it would released from the port, he wasn't sure). I think that syncs with the car being unloaded in the next day or two in Baltimore, port installed options put on and shipped to NC.
