    Re: Broke in today

    Michigan? I went to school in Ann Arbor Dude I have only 1200 miles on mine and I am already reving it up

    Re: Broke in today

    Ahhhh, I wish I can rev up the engine! So far I only have 75 miles on my car!

    Re: Broke in today

    Congrats, Flap! Wangt.. go to Las Vegas for a long weekend!

    Re: Broke in today

    Give it 500 miles and then rev it up slightly higher. When you hit a 1000 miles rev it up higher but do not stay close to red just a quick rev up and down. This is of course my opinion. But I swear the car gets lazy when driven too slow.

    Re: Broke in today

    Years ago Porsche said start with a 4000 redline for the first 500 miles; increase it to 4500 for the next 500 to 1000. Then up to 5000 to 1500 miles. Then to 5500 to 2000 miles. Then you're cleared hot!

    My success with the regimented breakin? No appreciable increase in engine life, and it used plenty of oil.

    Drive it like you stole it,--but warm it up gently!

    2100 miles as of today. Actually hit the rev limiter for the first time. It's amazing how quickly one gets jaded with the power.

    Good job flap! I put on 230 miles in two days. Seems like some GMC and Ford pick-ups do not like the idea of somebody here in Michigan with a Porsche. Have you noticed this as well?

    Re: Broke in today

    happy driving now!

    A little, but I'm not sure if it's just pickups or the fact that there are just so many of them. I did my first pass on a two lane road yestereday. I came to a four way stop in the country and the guy directly accross from me got to interesection first. As I should, I was going to let him go first, but he waved me on, I believe so he could get a good look at my car. I gave him the friendly driver wave and right after another car went through the intersection drove off. The other car, typical MI beater was slow, the road was absolutely clear so I went to pass him. Just as I got into the other lane on his left rear quarter panel he did a swerve to the left, I guess passing him wasn't allowed. However, by the time I did this, the pass was committed and had he came over another foot or two I simply would have hit him. I will bet the swerve wasn't even thought about. Just an impulse. That's how people are. You just have to live with it and expect it to happen.
