Why don't you set the shift light and the beep to remind you of shifting?

People cant even decide on the break in procedure, many beleive the break in should be done as you plan to drive the car for the rest of its life. If thats true then you actually did it right. If not then so what, you didnt bounce of the rev limiter or anything.

Do you honestly think the person driving your STI off of the boat was monitoring your break in procedure?
