i just bought a blue mach 1 today 2004 off the dealer with 35 miles, 29,666 with alarm and 100k/7 year warranty - got a pretty good deal since the msrp was 29 without the warranty and alarm, had a 3k rebate on the mach 1. put about 120 miles on it today, couple questions, i drove moderatly today well i can't say that i take that back but i kept it below 4k rpms most of the day but i had to let go racing a z28, m3 and a gsr ( all my buddies.) ruined the m3 and the gsr but the z28 held with me..i pulled at the end, but he by no way had a chance if i knew how to drive this sucker off the line should i be keeping off the thorttle for a set limit? i hear 500 to 1k miles and then i hear you can start driving like you stole it off the lot? my biggest fear is if i just might of worn in the engine wrong in the early mileage of the car, i mean i didnt go into red line but i did go into 6k rpms. Also i know in previous new cars i had to change the oil every 500 miles for the first 2k miles because of the fragments of metal hitting metal getting in the oil? if so , when do i change the oil on the car? i have not had any problems today with the car and i drove it all day other then i walked off the dealer with a paint chip on the hood that i didnt notice till i was cleaining it but no worries they are fixing it monday free.. which they should.. any help would be fantastic - thanks alot oh yeah and another thing - my buddy has a 03 mach 1 and he has the mach 1 badge on the trunk, my car on the other hand does not? is this a new change for the 04?
