The day after I picked up my A4Q, I was scheduled to make a 300 mile trip.
After waiting for 4 months to get it, I couldn't very well leave my brand
spankin' new car in the garage now could I ?  I asked the dealer whether it
would be OK to take it, and he said that as long as I following the break
in instructions in the manual, I would be OK.  I further made sure that I
didn't spend an extended period at any one RPM - I made sure I cycled
through the gears at least once per hour.
