    So the manual states to not rev over 4500 RPM for the first 1200 then to gradually increase the max speed you go. Also aware of breaking in the brakes.

    But are there other things I should know about breaking-in? More notably, should I avoid using Sport Mode or manual mode until the car is broken in?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Biggest thing is to avoid traveling at constant speed/rpm for extended periods of time. Be sure to vary rpm. Sport mode and manual mode are fine.

    Heh, I tried really hard to drive carefully. I made it about 150 miles and then my buddy tried to pull on me so I stepped on it. Car is fine.

    People have been beating on their cars so I wouldn’t stress.
