Keep it under 3k RPM for about 1200 miles--I think that is what the manual suggests.

My brother did the same thing when I first got my car, and everything seems fine. I looked at it this way: He's my brother, he's the only one I've got, so who cares!!??

Picked it up in Europe in september and drove it around there for a month, it even came back to America with the euro plates still on it.
