I'm at 77k (original owner) I always smell oil after I park it in the garage. My car has never used any oil between oil changes which are every 3-3.5k w/Rotella T6 5w40.
I bought my car with very little research on turbos too! Read some great reviews and bought it. I only found this forum a year ago and have learned a lot about the car. Thank God I've always been service minded.
The mods are a tough call for a noob like myself. I'm doing my 1st mod a RSB, endlinks and mounts when the temps go up. I have planned aDP/tune but I'm on the fence now. I wish I was as knowledgeable as most of the guys on here. GL enjoy the car.
