Yeah, only hand wash it. If water/soap get in the hoodscoop and on the intercooler, it will destrory the panet and bring about the end of humanity.

Um keep it under 4krpm for the first 1000 miles.

Folks reported trouble getting the trunk open, damage in the front lip, damage to the exhaust tip from truck delivery.
Don't ask about the"Super Polyshield"...
If you got the wheel locks ask where the key and lugs are that the locks replaced.
Ask about the snew!

wistful actually has doctor booties for all passengers to wear until he get floor mats.

Hey Don, put a big sign that says "Break In Period" on the windows so no clowns try to race you. And you should let the guy that stores all your car crap at his house drive it too.

Well, when you get back into Ohio you should inspect your rearview mirror for me and then you should look in front of you so you can see my taillights when I fly by... BWAHAHAHAHA! Just kidding, see you at Hocking Hills, Don. Have a safe drive brotha. I think I'm almost as excited as you are for your STI!

Check the hood to make sure it isn't dented. I've already seen one STI, with a dented hood, because the tech tried a little to hard to close it.

Pedal on the left is the clutch.
Middle is Brake.
Right is throttle.

The round thingy is the steering wheel, it turns.
Press the center, it beeps.

Things in the rearview mirror may appear smaller than they are.
They will look even smaller as you accelerate.

Do not see if it will get smaller if it has flashing lights atop it.

Do not seek to adjust the radio or CD, there isn't one.

The knob-topped thing sticking up is the gear shift.

...unless you're *very happy* to be getting yer STi...

In either case, gripping it firmly should give you more satisfaction than limp-wristing it.

...Or so I'm told...

Do not let the salesman touch either of them, even if he claims it's part of the "routine" PDI.

Do not put either in your mouth.

Oh, one last tip-- ENJOY the CAR!!!
