Y'know, that'* a brand new car. I don't think I'd be driving it like that if I just bought it.
i think ther is a 1-5k mile "break in" period on new cars. If I had just dropped $20k+ I would baby the hell out of it.
Yes, but thats no fun. The day we brought the GTP home we ordered a 3.4 Pulley and CAI and it was on the next week with only 300 miles on the clock. We also beat the **** out of it before that. Then between 15 & 18k it got everything it has now. And the SSEi we beat the **** out of too when it was brand new, it didn't have a pulley until 20,000 miles, and no other mods until like 60k, but still. And it seems to be running very well with 89,000 miles on the clock. I have heard of all of this proper break in crap, but we haven't ever had a problem breaking them in with the pedal on the floor so far, so why change now?
Just my opinion.
