1200-3000 after break in service done, limited to 135mph and passing only at 155mph in short bursts which probably means do not read line or abuse

Seems logical
Yep! That's exactly how I read it in the UK manual!
I did like the bit that stated you can go briefly to the vehicles maximum of 155mph for example when overtaking! Lol

Mine is having its 1200 break in service today and I spoke directly with the tech to get the run down on what they do.
He confirmed the usual engine oil/filter/ diff oil/ visual inspection underneath etc and reprogramming of the DME to unleash a bit more power/action! :-)
