I class all of it as bad advice.

My current engines have 283k miles and 208k miles on them respectively - both are driven MUCH
more energetically than any US-based engine and both bottom ends are original.

When you open the packet, you've got parts in your hand that will easily do a quarter of a
million miles (with appropriate care such as oil changes).  Leave 'em alone, put 'em in, and
get down the pub.

Audi (and Mahle) know a DAMN sight more about bearings than any of us will ever know.
