Hopefully picking up my new WRX this week and I've of course read the recommended break-in procedure in the manual. It seems this is the same procedure that's been printed in every manual for every car for the past 30+ years. I'm sure it's anitquated but is probably a good CYA for the manufacturer. One of the salespersons at the dealership has told me on more than one occasion that the WRX engines are "already broken in" and that nothing special needs to be done. I've never asked him for the source of that information and just dismissed it. I doubt SOA would condone one of their reps advocating for something that directly contradicts their printed documents. Anyway, I'm assuming that it is still recommended to do the written 1K miles routine. Any thoughts to the contrary?
