Picked up a shiny new Bravo Dynamic T-Jet 150 on Thursday. First impressions are great. Can anyone tell me whether it should be run in? The manual says "We recommend that during the initial period you do not drive to full car performance (e.g. excessive acceleration, long journeys at top speed, sharp braking etc)". I'm just not sure what the "initial period" is or what constitutes "excessive". Any ideas?

Basically I'd read that as always get the car upto temp before 'pressing on' and avoid red-lining the car during the first thousand miles.
