Default Break-in Period

Is there one? If so, what is it? What does the owner's manual say on this topic? Are you guys abiding by it?

My plan for the European Delivery, not surprisingly, will be to drive the snot out of it on the autobahn... But then I gave pause and thought about a break-in period, if there is one...

Just ask the factory rep when you pick up the car.

Yes, which makes little sense for a 9,000 RPM engine. I suspect it's the usual stamp. I did what I understood Macca was told, one tank to 7,000, then bam!

I have no idea how I'm not going to fall to temptation. The fun is barely starting at 4200!

I tend to side with the ROW recommendations, but that's just me

Thanks. The info that I have which came through someone else, but was from AP, was stay under 7K rpm for the first 400 miles (would equate to just about 1 tank) then step up gradually after that, so not quite "bam!" By 800-1000 miles everything should be broken in. Besides that, no long stretches at steady RPM, complete oil warm-up, the usual stuff....
