    Break in Process

    What is the recommended break in process for the 997. Mine should be here in a few days.

    Re: Break in Process

    Owner's manual says not to exceed 4500 rpms for the first 2000 miles or so.

    Of course I wasted no time in doing that! I put on 2225 miles on my Turbo 4 days after taking delivery.

    Re: Break in Process

    Do a search. Meanwhile I repost this from a high-level technical expert at "Excellence" magazine:

    Re: Break in Process

    500 miles and then go to town.

    Re: Break in Process

    He "used to have a friend who worked at the factory"?

    So his main qualification being that he worked at the Porsche factory is somehow superior to the recommendation of the same Porsche factory?

    I believe anyone who doesn't follow the procedure in the manual is opening themselves up to possible warranty issues down the road, remeber big brother is watching!

    Re: Break in Process

    Agreed on the "big brother" issue. I'd rather adhere to the recommended factory suggestions than listen/read some testimony that supposedly is the "fact."

    Just for the record, I'm not stubenhocker!

    No, he is Bruce Anderson, the technical guru at "Excellence" magazine. You know, _THE_ magazine for Porsche. (not some loser advertiser-owned mag like R&T and C&D).

    When he refers to his friend in this case you can bet the friend is a senior engine engineer at Porsche.

    Re: Break in Process

    I'm pretty sure Porsche's break in "hints" (not a very strict choice of words) are different for the U.S. then the rest of the world? If that's true, it's kind of tough to take too seriously. I'm not saying redline it out of the dealers lot, but babying the car for a couple of thousand miles is also a bit much in my opinion.
