    I finally did it...

    I finally broke-in my car today and it feels good especially the way I did it! When you are breaking-in the car, it seems 2000 miles is so long. So I went on a little 350 mile journey to get to 2000.

    Went to the PCA event at Willow Springs (near where the civilian rocket plane was launched recently) today in the high desert. Most people will take the freeways that are nice and straight around the mountains. Not me, went the quickest and shortest method through the mountains. The car is just awesome. Then afterwards went across the desert east exploring (found several jetliner grave sites, just very wierd where they go to die), the car at 120 (which is fast for the US) is so stable (and it still was not broken-in at that point so I couldn't go faster ). The cool thing was I tried to find the smaller roads because that its where the fun is.

    A 997S may be faster, but this is by far the coolest Porsche I have ever driven. This car was my dream car and has exceeded all my wildest expectations. Plus it has been perfect, no problems, noises, nothing.

    Two miles from home the magic 2000 appeared on the odometer. Now it is going to feel wierd not varying the speed constantly and being able to change gears after 4200 RPM. Oh well, it will be fun.

    Congratulations. Great post.

    Re: I finally did it...

    My dealer said take it easy for the first 1,000 miles - I past that point today and was flooring it all morning. Are you telling me I should have waited another 1,000 miles???

    This is impossible...

    Enjoy your car, I surely would enjoy mine...but the weather is horrible right now and I'm in no mood to drive around.
