Default Been a long time: Upgrading to GT PT

Howdy folks from Nashville! Just wanted to say
that I am back. Used to post as Magic8ball, but couldn't
seem to get that log on to work anymore.

So, to celebrate the trading in of my old Black
2001 PT Limited, for a Brand new 2004 Electric Blue GT PT,
I've re-registered under "wunderboyblue" instead.
Cannot wait, as I get to pick her up on Tuesday!

I have received much needed advice from this wonderful
forum many times before - and it has been appreciated.

Anything right off the bat that a new "Turbor Owner"
should be aware of on a 2004 GT PT....?

Hope all of your are doing well and enjoying the
holiday weekend!

I have been noticing some posts about this.
Appreciate the response, so how long do you
usually let your's idle before shut-down?

The Owner's Manual says 1 minute for normal driving and 3 minutes for highway driving (or WOT driving). Congrats on your new GT--great car and sharp color! [8D] [8)]

Thank you Gary04GT! I am new to the whole Turbo
thang on my car. Once I test drove one, after
driving a 2001 Limited for 3yrs... I had to have one.
I will have to study up on the finer details here,
as I want this car to last forever!

In that case be sure to change over to a synthetic oil like Mobil 1 5W-30 somewhere between 3-6K miles. [|)]

Actually the manual states no cool down needed for normal driving, 3 min for hard driving, 5 min for towing. But who's counting. If you have a good synth. oil, you are one step ahead. Do a synthetic change at your first change. I did mine around 800 mi.
