Break In Period Discrepancy


Vehicle Information: Model : Carrera 911 997; Year: 2005; Mileage: 1400;

I read your answer to "what is the proper break in period" and concur, this is generally what the manual says. However, 3 seperate Porsche dealerships service depts. have told me to 1. "Just keep it under 160 mph for the first 2000 miles......" 2. "Officially, follow the manual but I would drive it how you want to, you can't hurt the engine." and 3. "Don't baby it, it's much better to run it hard at first, makes for a better running engine in the long run." Do you have any comments to these dealership reply's?
