It's a mystery eyeball. I parked where there were at least 20 empty parking spots around me. I come out of the store and there is a 1994 Ford Bronco jammed right next to my car. In the drivers seat...

Don't worry -- you'll finally give up trying to manage scratches & other imperfections at about the 1 year mark and will then really begin to enjoy the car.

Observations at 9K

1. The drive train seems smoother, quicker, and more responsive.
2. The front end is amazingly free of pock marks and chips. My Acura's would be covered with them by now.
3. The external gas cap...

I've had everything from 4 bangers to 12 cylinders -- so I think I'm pretty attuned to engines. Maybe it's all part of building an engine that'll 200K -- it takes 25K for it to really break-in.

My engine seems stronger and smoother at 9K miles

I experienced this with my Acura's. Their engines seemed to break in at around 10K gaining some torque and horsepower. My 350 IS appears to me to have done the same. I didn't notice it on my 385hp...
