Lightbulb Break in period boring? how bout some music

I dont quite recall how long the break in on an M3 is (my guess is 1200 miles?) but since you really cant make the engine do anything exciting, how bout some tunes? when I picked up my GT I was told I couldnt be aggressive with it for about 1000 miles so I just popped some CD's in and enjoyed the ride. So what music would you listen to?

break-in is the foreplay before the 8400 rpm climax.

All of the above. But I have a tradition and in each of my last few cars, the first song I've listened to was Red Barchetta by Rush.

Def the dance and techno, but is it just me or does that music just want to make you drive faster, may not be good for break in! So I am going to keep it off and listen to the sweet sound of the motor. Why's jazz not on the list? Candy Dulfur, Richard Elliot are also good driving music.

Radar Love by Golden Earring (1973) is my favorite trip driving song, but it's too short.

I would say hip hop. If you can't go fast might as well look and sound cool going slow.
