Yes - gears have a break in period. Diffs do need to be broken in. Careful who you "play along" with. He never said anything about being on the phone. He was however in Germany at BMW and had some time at M division - so there might be a correlation.....

But I do understand why you be skeptical given some of the stuff posted on this board.
