Break-in Limbo

Just hit 1200 miles, but have another week before my 1200 mile service appointment...not sure that I can make it another week.

I blew past 1200 miles. My service will happen with about 1900 miles on the car. I'm not going to lose any sleep over it.

I am going to make it a point to perform an oil analysis at every change, though.

I am not worried about the miles. Just want to open it up without worrying about what the dealership may or may not say.

I had a similar thread. I think its all about the dealer and how hard of a time they give you if you go over the RPMs etc. I got my service done at 1400 miles and just played it safe until after the service was done.

...many others redlined it from day 1
