i was told by a high up, M tech that for a few hundred miles take it easy 350 to 500 after that a few red line runs wont kill it, he said 1,200 mile break in is designed for those few hundred cars that might break during this period if not treated properly. i mean they're a mass produced car so they're will be a few ones that will break and always have problems but at least if you take all the necessary procedures it helps your chances of not breaking anything. what you please, these motors are pre broken in i assure you but take it easy for a few hundred miles and then you can drive it like you stole it or not...
