    break in period

    According to the manual it says to drive it gently till about 300miles and then you're good to go. I got the car at 276 miles and drove it gently till about 600 (shifting in between 3k-3.4k).

    I'm at 1300 and i've been consistently shifting at 3.4k-4k. When would i be good to take her to redline a few times?

    Once the engine is up to temperature.
