... I recall when I bought my A6 over 5 years ago, I was told that the engine is run-in at the factory, and just drove it like normal fro the word go. 100k miles later and it's as sweet as anything... but... I found the owners book states you should stay below 50 mph and 3,000 rpm for the first 500 miles!

So what is the recommendation nowadays?

Anyone have it on good authority?

Its up to the individual to decide which works for them - I've seen this discussed many times on car forums, and there is NEVER agreement ;)
...Darn! That fills me with hope for an official answer... NOT.:p

My book says 1500KM. Doesn't seem to give any indication of max RPM or speed though.

...how the hell am I going to take it easy for 1,500km? I think a cruise to Edinburgh and back is on the cards the first day I get it!!!

;)
