New V6 owner

Just got a new V6 and want to know how long to run it in. Will 1000m at 4k be enough. Cant see it in the handbook, when I asked the dealer he looked blank.

Hi Donkin
Welcome To AO.
There are no rules and regulations on running it in. Just keep an eye on the oil - every weekend. A few bursts of full on zip won't do it any harm at all. Just don't labour it.

I ran mine at under 4k for 1,000 miles (ok, one or two blips further up the range). The dealer said not to bother, but it can never hurt!

Anyway, now at 30,000 miles and haven't needed a drop of oil (other than changing at services) since 8,000 miles. The local dealer refuses to believe that this is true!
