OK, so this has been discussed elsewhere already. But I for one will be following the break in guidelines since I have a little more than 1800 miles to cover on the way back from the Museum delivery. So by the second day I should be done with the most critical ones and ready for some fun By then the temporary red line will have disappeared from the tac as well.So I am picking up my car on Thursday. I understand you shouldnt exceed 4500 RPM for the first 500 miles but seriously? I mean who is buying this car and not mashing the pedal to the ground at least once on your way home from the dealership?
That sounds like a plan. I have seen at least one other individual who is planning on doing something similar. For RedHot I think I will just not use the cruise control for the first 500 miles and that should get around any constant rpm. The other key thing to try and avoid is any idiot requiring you to suddenly brake during that same time. So a real focus on the 3 second rule or safe distance while not trying to focus on all the cool goodies in your new C7 will pay big rewards down the road IMO.I too have about 1200 miles right out of the dealer on the interstate to get home.....I've thought about how to "vary the speed" so it gets thru the 500 miles acc to the book. It's really the RPM they want varied, so my plan is to do this: set my iphone timer for 20 min. I have an A6. I'll get up to 65 mph in the Manual mode using paddles, and set the cruise, and then every 20 min, paddle down to 5th and go 20 min, paddle back to 6th, etc until I'm done with the 500 miles. This also will kill the AFM so all 8 cyls are being used at all times.
I'm open to any other way, any opinions?
