Manual suggest typical break-in limitations:

No hard braking.
No hard acceleration. Stay under 4k RPM.
No constant highway speed.

Is everyone obeying? So far I am, but my foot may not listen for much longer.

I have been but that might change this weekend on my trip to Toronto. I'm already at 670 miles. On my way home I should be passed the break in restraint.

Heh....I was promising myself that I would restrain myself but the wifey and I have already floored it quite a couple of times already! Even had an instance last Friday where I tried to floor it while using my paddle shifter from a complete stop @ a traffic light! Little did I know that just across the street was the city hall! Saw a police car pull out of the city hall parking area and thought I was in trouble! Good thing he just drove past me! After that I drove like a grandma! Hahahaha! :D

Not my kid's grandma (my Mother-in-Law). She has a lead foot and scares the crap out of my when she drives. She's one of those people who gets pulled over often but always avoids a ticket.

Haha! I wish I had her luck! Speeding tickets have been a once every 2 yr thing for me and I am about to celebrate it in a few months so I am being pretty cautious...well, based on my previous story, I might be lying! :p

Been following (1) and (2), but (3) is hard to do on my work commute. Especially when they don't specify what distance one must avoid driving at constant highway speed. 500 feet? 5 miles? 5 minutes? :confused:

340 miles so far. 25% there.

I was wondering the same thing. I tend to put on the Cruise Control about 7 MPH over speed limit on highways (cops around here are usually looking to 10+). I try to speed up occasionally, but I don't know how often that should be either.

Get a radar detector. Problem solved!
Not in Virginia.

I live in Maryland, but I live closer to VA and it's where I also work. Sucks having to take the detector down and then forgetting to put it back up once I cross over the WWB.:(

That sucks. Its a habit of mine to put my detector on when I hit the highway.

Hahaha! I'd rather put my money towards mods than my once in every two year donation of traffic tickets! Hahaha!

No hard breaking? I've been accused by Infiniti service of burning out brakes early due to 'high speed braking'. I've asked them if I should use my foot instead. So, not sure I can control this.

4K RPM? I think I can manage that.

Constant highway speed? No problem. I can easily vary my speed between 70-90mph.
