tires! but for real... check the pressure in the tires WAY overinflated from Aus for the trip and dealers dont check it

JUst checked mine and all four were almost 60 psi I think they do this to prevent flat spots on your tires if it was to sit for long periods. Fronts should be 33psi and rears 39 psi. I bet my car will ride a little better with almost half the air in them.

Change your oil ASAP. It's not a problem, but you want to do it first thing, then about a 1000 miles later (after first oil change).



Congrats :cheers

See the post in sevice forum about STRUT LEAK. Other than that this car is killer so far. If you researced the TSB's before purchase you already knew it was a possibility anyway. Enjoy the ride amigo.

I've also heard (not sure if it is true or not) that sometimes the original oil will still contain tiny particles from the original manufacture of the block (maybe metal shavings or bits of the grease used when cutting metal?). Anyway, I changed mine at 1500--a tad later than others, but still got it out of the way.

that and assembly lube and the fact that its been in there for the entire trip over the ocean from halfway around the world.....is it mandatory? no but its piece of mind knowing that you fresh oil in there
