Hi, and welcome.

Running in questions likely to get you a ton of conflicting advice!

My opinion is that these days not really necessary, though common sense says for the first few hundred miles be gentle with both engine and brakes, and gradually wind it up from there. After about 1K miles everything should be bedded in nicely, though some engines have shown tendency to use a bit of oil in first 5K miles or so after which this settles down too :thumbsup:

It tells you in your manual.

And we've covered it on here so many times. Use the search button at the top of the page.
