Break in the engine in the QV?

What is the break in period for this car? I could have sworn there is no break in for the QV's?

With other vehicles, it's typically 500 miles for the differential to settle in.

Break-in for a QV, after proper warm-up is driving it like you stole it...
Opinions may vary, but it worked well for all my sports cars....

Im following the break in in the book to a point for the 4 cylinder... Im taking it easy but no long idles till 300 miles, then opening it up slowly to about 500 miles... Im doing the Dragon run in a few weeks then when I get back changing the oil

I suspect the QV’s are broken in by the factory. There is no way they put in the break in procedure for the 2L and forgot the 2.9L....or at least that’s what I am hoping because my intention was to take it easy for the first 1,000 miles but I was not able to control myself after about 400 miles. ?

GTM without a wing -- well done sir! I've always liked those!

How is the fit and finish? I've always been curious about them, but heard the FF cars are a bit too kit-car-ish, with fit and finish being not very good.
