Howdy All,

Just crossed the 1000 mile mark with my 07 Si. Took a couple quick pictures to document it in all it's stockness...







Already upgraded map and dome lights to red LED (SuperBright Festoon 9s) will be tinting soon also.

I sold my 2000 BMW528i and got back into the Japanese scene because I love the simplicity and fun of driving a stick again. But I have a couple questions:

1. Anyone else feel like their exhaust note has quieted down after the first 1000 miles?

2. Is there any need to allow the engine to "warm up" before driving? Found nothing in the manual about it - I assume as with most new vehicles you just drive nice and easy till your engine temp gauge gets happy - then raise the aggression level ;)

the vtec solenoid wont engage until it has warmed up for 3 bars...so i assume you can drive however you want after the 3 bars are there. i usually start driving as soon as i start my car, but drive like a grandma until its warmed up. lol
