How many miles should you drive a new MS3 before really letting the horses out or autocrossing?

Manual says 600 miles.

wow. i honestly was thinking somewhere around like 2,000 because of the turbo and such. guess i was way off. I think 1000 would be a safe number though.

When I read the subject, the first thing that came to my mind was a rock to the drivers side window.

I tried to baby it for 600, but about 50-100 miles into it I had to do a high speed run and hit 140mph a couple times and my car is running fantastic at 31k miles!

You can still come, it's no big deal. It's just a nice way to get to know some people around the area incase you have questions or need help, and we always like meeting new people. So don't hesitate to show up, we don't bite or kill you if you don't have your mazda :D

Don't hesitate to lemme know if you have ?s about the local meets.

Good luck with the car!
