Just over 600

It took me almost 7 weeks to get 620 miles on mine, due to weather. Today, as I went by the bank, it was 52, almost paradise. It hadn't even been started in two weeks, but fired right up. Anyway, the engine is loosening up, and feels like it's revving quicker. The brakes are waaaaaay better. If it wasn't for what I read up on, I probably would have hit the guy ahead at the first red light. Not sure how many miles it took for the brakes to get better, but I was braking when not needed, to seat them in better (keeping an eye in the mirrors, people behind you aren't expecting you to do that, so I went where there was no traffic). I'll bring it to the dealer for the 600, tossing them a bone, as it were. After that, I'll probably do all the upkeep on it myself. Did a lot of research on which DS I would get, this one's a keeper.
