Here's my 2 cents on the whole break-in argument:
A few years ago i took a tour of the Subaru plant in Lafayette, IN. At the end of the production line there were rollers set up like a dyno that every new car ran on before leaving the production floor. Each car was beat on hard- they went through every gear, full throttle- stopping under hard braking and then stomping on the throttle again and again. If that doesn't break a new car in i don't know what would.
Granted- these were all non-turbo models because those are made in Japan, but these cars are engineered to be driven with enthusiasm so why wouldn't they have all the internal parts primed and ready to rage out of the factory?
I would have it checked out if i were you.
Also: I just picked up a new STi earlier this month and i was hitting the shift light when i test drove it with the salesman with me. He just smiled and complemented me on my driving.
