RE: 97 A4 Motion Sensors / break-in period
This may be abuse of a new car, but I did it and the car is still great: The
day of delivery I took it on my old daily commute of 120 miles round trip.
Yeah, I kept it slow-ish, but I still did it.

One of my colleagues has a '96 A4Q and told me how his alarm once kept
going off every couple of minutes for no apparent reason. Closer
inspection revealed that he had accidentally locked a fly into the car
which kept triggering the motion sensor.
On another note, I should be taking delivery of my '97 A4Q this week.
Unfortunately, I have to travel 180 miles down to Maryland on Friday
and back on Sunday. I gather it would be a bad idea to take the new
car? What if I keep the RPMs relatively low (what's the limit during
the breakin period?) and try and vary them during the drive? What are
some general rules of thumb during break-in?
