All,

My Stelvio just arrived. I ordered it from the dealer and it took a couple of months but I got it. It is Stromboli Grey with the TI Sport package. I chose black calipers with white script. Black interior. 20" rims.
This car rocks. I love the power and the ride.

I waited a long time for it but it was worth the wait. The wife loves it also. The power of the vehicle took me by surprise. I have had Subaru WRX's and STI's in the past and this vehicle feels to have a lot more power.

Nice, looks great. Love the sport 20" wheels, super nice for a factory option.

Yes, Per page 142 of the manual.


RECOMMENDATIONS
2.0L GMET4 Engine Break-In
For vehicles equipped with the 2.0L
GME T4, use the following engine
break-in recommendations:
Despite modern technology andWorld
Class Manufacturing methods, the
moving parts of the engine must still
wear in with each other. This wearing in
occurs mainly during the first 500 miles
(805 km) and continues through the first
oil change interval.
Note: A new engine may consume some
oil during its first few thousand miles
(kilometers) of operation. This should be
considered a normal part of the break-in
period and not interpreted as an
indication of a problem. Please monitor
your oil level during the break-in period
and add oil as required.
It is recommended for the operator to
observe the following driving behaviors
during the new vehicle break-in period:
0 to 100 miles (0 to 160 km):
Do not allow the engine to operate at
idle for an extended period of time.
Press the accelerator pedal slowly and
not more than halfway to avoid rapid
acceleration.
Avoid aggressive braking.
Drive with the engine speed less than
3500 RPM.

Truer words have never been spoken. This applies to all cars and all new engines despite the crap you hear from SA's and shop mechanics. Therefore, NEVER, ever, buy a demo car from a dealer, regardless of the great deal they give you.
