RE: A4Q break-in: first oil change, etc.

Other points.  Everyone agrees synthetic oils should *not* be used until at
least 7500 miles, or perhaps even 10,000 or 15,000 miles.  Also, varying
rpm's is a must for break-in, with advise generally recommending not to
exceed 3200-3500 rpms.

Any other break-in tips are more than welcome.  I'd especially like to hear
opinions on the oil change issue.  Thanks in advance.

Not quite everyone. I've been advised by more than one engine builder to switch to synth ASAP. This is supposed to keep the 'edge' on the engine longer, better ring/cylinder sealing, better compression, less wear, etc.

Also, keep in mind that Audi is paying for those oil changes when they recommend 7500 mile drain intervals....
