I just purchased a 2002 Jetta GLI 24V VR6. What is the recommended break-in period for the engine, ~5,000 miles?

When i bought my 1.8t they told me to drive it like i would any other time. I've also been told that you should push it for 1000-3000 miles. db, how long did you wait?

That is exactly what they told me. Drive it normal...normal being the keyword. Don't beat it, rev the engine etc. Keep it under 80 mph as well for the first 750 miles. From what I was told the car is designed and built like it's broken in you don't have to baby the car as much as other makes. However i would still paper the ride for a while.

Best of luck & congrats!
