Hi all
Just got my new FX35
I was wondering , what is the best way to break-in the car during the Break in period??
Hard or soft driving?

Mixed RPM's, not over 4000rpm.... up to 1200 miles. Details in your owner's manual.

IS it better to warm the engine in idle for a while or is a minute or 2 enough?

You don't need to wrm up your car. Those days are long past. But...you don't want to be high revving your engine when its first started and the engine block is cold.
Just take it east until it warms up.

A slim-jim or a lock pick will do the trick. If your pressed for time, a brick will suffice. :p

first and foremost is to have variation in the throttle/speeds....


basically, you wanna drive the car as you probably wouldn't normally ; or ON-OFF the gas fairly often, to keep changing the revvs... (pistons/rings are seating, and need a workout; just no redline dances)
