My previous Audi RS4, also a high revving V8, had similar recommendations and I ignored them too. Zero issues there also. The recommendations are there because a lot of people don't know how to do a proper break in, and there must be allowances for this. It is easy to tell people just to baby the car for a certain time period rather than tell them what really needs to be done for optimal performance.
