Warm the car up fully
Get on the fun pedal and enjoy.
I broke my present car in by tracking it the first two weekends I owned it. I've been rewarded with a car that desires an extra liter of oil about every 6-7K miles.
Exactly correct!I thought the breakin was from pickup, to your driveway, then the distance to the track the next morning. You arrive and boom...breakin is done, or surely done by the end of the day. Worked for the S4. This time there isnt a trackday pre booked, so more time for a breakin period.
The key is to not BEAT the motor for the first 500 miles.. Meaning it's a performance engine so treat it as such! I have a 2022 Performance Plus and today with 430 miles I took it on a highway stretch for about 3- miles and ran it at 120mph just to blow out the motor. It's a race car, and as long as you're not using Launch Control at ever start, and taking it to 8000rpm daily it's ok to drive it hard. There is a difference being hard and beating!! The engine is engineered and built knowing it will be run hard....manual says 1500 mile break in period. Not to exceed 6000 RPM for the first 600 miles. No full acceleration for the first 1200 miles. Then from 1200-1500 miles gradually increase rpm's to 8250. How much to a tee do people follow this?
