    Looks great, I wish my car had received these treatments when the original owner bought it new. On the bright side, when I get a new scratch, I cringe but quickly move on. I think if I bought a new car my family would not let me take the car anywhere as the following scenario would likely unfold:

    Everyone gets in the car and off we drive for groceries.
    Start to park, realize someone 'could' park near me, park further away.
    Still uncomfortable I park in a totally different lot at a closed business.
    Now concerned about vandalism or theft, we park in a garage...our garage.
    We take the wife's car.

    15 GBP STi

    Lol, I do park way out in the lot. Someone always parks beside me. I don't understand but it is so. Buying new creates a lot of stress.

    I park in a parking garage for work. I get there early so I can get a safe spot. If I get in later, I go to the roof. Only other safe place since there are only a few cars there.

    Totally worth the walk.

    Regarding parking far away in lots...

    Let's all agree that we may be somewhat delusional parking in the opposite ends of lots in order to protect our vehicles. However, people who park next to us at the end of the lot ARE MORE DELUSIONAL THAN WE ARE!

    My reaction every time that shit occurs:

    Awesome progress!

    I forgot to ask, what was the exact mileage on the dashboard when you were handed over the keys?

    How will you driving during the first 1,000 miles?

    I totally meant to take a picture of that when I dropped off the car but failed. this is one of my boys best friends so am pretty sure the took it out for a joy ride before working on it. Ferris Bueller comes too easily to mind.

    Break in is under 3k for 1k miles, oil change, then working up through the RPM range with some slow pulls in 4th or 5th gear. If everything feels and sounds good, then I can have some fun. Not completely broken in till 2nd oil change. No dropping the clutch from standstill ever.

    This is how trust issues begin to develop.

    Picked up the car Thursday evening. Able to put 200+ miles on it by end of day Saturday. Raining all day today so took advantage to install the Kartboy short shifter, Lathewerks SS shift knob, Rally Armor mud flaps, and the F1 tail light (no pic). Haven't driven it yet but everything is ready to go for work tomorrow.

    First 200 miles
