5500 rpm !!!!
Okay......how vital is it to strictly keep it under 5500 rpm for the first 1200 miles. 1200 miles seems a little much to me. Seems like 6000 rpm until 600 miles then 7000 rpm until 1200 miles might not be of any great detriment to the motor, but I am only guessing ( ??? ). These were the parameters on my old RS4 and as many of you know the motors are very similar.
I've driven the car less than 100 miles and already on two occasions zinged just past 5500 rpms. Didn't go over 6k, however. I couldn't help it. Motor just loves to rev !!!
