Slow Build by Jooks

So I just picked up my car three days back but I've already put 500 kilometers on her. I intend to start slow with maybe some fogs and a drop in filter but for the mean time I snapped some photos of her totally stock.

So it looks like the egg made contact with the window which is good. No scratches in the paint at all!

I got through the 1,600 km break in period on day 9 and took it to the track on day 11. It was a dealership sponsored event specifically for FR-S owners that was 8 hours of in class and on track instruction. It was a really good opportunity to get a good feel for the car and meet a lot of cool people! It was nice too to see the different mods people have already done to the car and because it was no passing and no lap times the warranty is still good

I'm going to try to sell the Enkei RPF1s I have from my old car and use that money for a drop in filter, HIDs, fog lights and new brakes and rotors.
