When I picked up my car in Munich, I was told that if I was to break it in properly, I would *have* to spend time at 100mph.

So, I did. =)

I varied my speed and didnt take the engine over 4,000 revs for the breakin period (I forget how many miles, but it was over 1000)

Stateside, I'd have to recommend keeping it under 90. We have speed limits (dangit) and the police seem to enjoy enforcing them (spoilsports).
