Why is it that of all the precautions car manufacturers put in the manual the break-in period is somehow sacred? Yet people ignore the advice to never disable the traction control, or drive at high speeds in slippery conditions, or make modifications to the engine and exhaust system? They're all just suggestions.

Like I said if it were really all that important they would do it at the factory. Or have a rev limiter that held the RPM under 4k for the first 1000 miles. Just like if they really didn't want you to disable traction control they wouldn't give you a way to do it.

Just drive the damn thing.
