    997S run in

    I got my 997S on mid Aug. When I saw the owner manual, they recommend it must be run in 3,000KM at least and not over 4,500rpm. So I drove it not over 100KM. Honda civc was faster than me at last sunday. Could anyone teach me how to run in the new 997S?

    Re: 997S run in

    TST always is the flavorite spot to take the pic!

    Re: 997S run in

    LOL!!! So in Hong Kong they tell you 4,500 rpm, in the U.S. they tell you 4,200 rpm, and in Europe we're still trying to figure out if they even DICTATE an rpm!!!

    It all goes to show that it's not flippin instructions for disarming an explosive device. There's alot of gray area involved, where different regional offices are making their own "RECOMMENDATIONS" (i.e. advice, proposal, suggestion, etc.) to hopefully ebb the overall level of abuse their products initially receive to hopefully lower warranty repair expenses a bit. Just don't kill the car in the 1st couple thou, and you'll be fine.

    If you think that's crazy anti-establishment heresy against clearly written and VITALLY STRICT instruction, then you better get busy making sure all the government's tags are still attached to your mattresses and pillows, otherwise you'll never get any sleep worrying that the CIA is coming to drag you in on a federal offense!!

    Hong Kong's on the metric system Bossnine

    Re: 997S run in

    but rpm doesn't change in metric or imperial systems they are the same

    After seeing the many threads about max RPM for break-in I decided to work out a proper mathmatical formula based on volumes of real-life, scientiffically garnered data. Here it is:

    Think of a number between 1 and 50.
    Double it.
    Times it by the square root of 32.
    Add your age.
    Minus your waist measurement.
    Times it by the bust size of the last woman you fantasised about.
    Take away the number you first started with.

    This is rock solid stuff, no more worries.

    NOW you're talking!!!

    This whole break-in matter is like debating over how-many repetitions of how-many stretch exercises for how-long of a duration a person should accomplish prior to going on a 5 mile jog.

    Aw, c'mon, that is totally unscientific!

    You didn't specify whether those are waist and bust sizes in inches or centimeters!

    Re: 997S run in

    Of course, if you live in the lower hemisphere, you have to do the entire calculation backwards....

    Due to my large waist measurement, I will be forced to stay at MUCH lower rpm. Not fair.

    Re: 997S run in

    Thanks for you advice! I will pay attention with my foot!
    But I think it will be very difficult to control myself

    Because different regions has different temperature, attitude, humidity, driving habbit, etc...

    Re: 997S run in

    In Florida, it can be 100 degrees in the summer, and 15 degrees in the winter. And am I to not wander away on a trip to the mountains during the 1st 2000 miles?

    Nope, I believe that each internally defined Porsche business region is responsible for its own profitability, for both sales and service. Therefore, they each have a say-so and input into what the break-in procedure in the handbook for cars delivered within their region will be, depending on what their priorities are, and what they believe thier customer demographic dictates. Porsche USA obviously is extremely paranoid of it's customer's ability to thrash machinery right out of the dealer's lot, as they've published the most conservative break-in, in an attempt to stem the tide and achieve certain measured reliability and warranty levels. LOL!!!!

    As I said a long time ago, these procedures are not handed directly down from the guys who designed the motors, unedited, untweaked. They are gurgitated through levels of bureaucracy and distilled into a final consumerized form.

    You're not following the engineer's direct advice, you're following the corporate compromise. And there's no harm in that, if it makes you sleep better.

    Oh, I was just kidding... I agreed with you, man...

    Re: 997S run in

    I knew you were being sarcastic. Your post just prompted me to expand on my theory.
