    Break-In Miles?

    In the US the break-in of 2000 mi is recommended.

    What is the recommended Break-In mileage in other parts of the world?

    Re: Break-In Miles?

    As I recall, someone posted 2000km in Europe.

    Re: Break-In Miles?

    3000km for France and rest of continental Europe. Meanwhile 2000 miles> 3000 kilometers, but that is not an issue since the manual states "for the first 3000 kms" or I guess in the US manual, "the first 2000 miles". You can conclude that those value are hypothetical. Judge by yourself what bound is good for you. I would say first 1000 miles is an average observed by many car companies. Why not stick to it? A Porsche is far more solid than an Impala or any chevy sedan. I'm sure you won't break anything if proper used.

    Re: Break-In Miles?

    why can't people just do what the manual says...

    sure you can do your own thing, its a free country.

    but as for the PROPER method, the manual is indisputable.

    Re: Break-In Miles?

    What a novel idea!!!! Believing that the manufacturer's engineers actually know how to properly break in the engine that they designed.

    Re: Break-In Miles?

    Exactly. Just do what the manual states.

    On what reports or other hard evidence do you base your firm opinion?

    Re: Break-In Miles?

    If the US is 2000 miles, wouldn't everywhere else be 2000 miles as well (converted to km's if needed)

    I have 1750 miles on my new C4S and I've followed it to the T. I probably could "go for it" now, but I prefer to follow the manual.

    Re: Break-In Miles?

    arthurY,
    it's just a car, not a rocket or Ariane V. your question feels stupid in this context. your response anyway:
    my so firm response as you say, is based on general observation. that's all I can say. it is sufficient don't you think? it the response of user lambda for a car model beta. take it on this basis, as to say, with no value.
    now if you want figures make your own analysis, I have more interesting to do in life.
    are you a scientist by the way? so typical of them to ask questions of this kind, but for interesting matters, I concede.

    Thank you, Zacharie, for your polite, specific and well-thought out response.

    No, I'm not a "scientist." Rather, I'm a person who tries to do the right things for himself and others here regarding the "best" if not at least the "proper" way to break in a new Porsche.

    Re: Break-In Miles?

    Sorry, I didn't want to be mean...I just said the question feels stupid, not you of course. I would have rather written "your question can't be easily answered given my knowledge". I evidently don't have figures and proofs on hand to contribute to an adequate answer to your question.
