This break in thing is kinda difficult to understand. What is happening between say 1200 and 2000 miles or whatever that hasn't already happened? We're talking thousands of RPM's over the course of 1200 miles....there's more for it to catch it's stride?? The olympian comparison also is hard to apply to a car. It is delivered fully mature. Muscle, bone, ligament, tendon, heart all at it's peak. I can understand a few hundred miles for things to 'settle', parts to wear smooth or whatever and even comprehend the need for keeping it chill until the 1st oil change but this prooooolonged break in is a bit of a challenge.
