    Interesting, I don't recall you guys following the recommended break in procedures on any of your other fleet vehicles (Porsche Macan S, Porsche 991 Cabrio, BMW E90 M3, etc.) or am I mistaken?

    i have seen it numerous times. they often mention that once a vehicle is out of its break in period they can do their instrument/track tests.

    The instructions seem unusually specific and restrictive. I guess that's German engineering for you. Still, if avoiding a "full load or kickdown under all circumstances" constitutes "keeping a light foot", I'd be interested to see what you'd consider "average" - or "lead-footed" - driving. Avoiding full throttle is "normal" for me.
