Should I break in my new 300 as the owners manual states??? Not going above 4000 rpm for the first 500 miles seems a bit overkill to me.

I was told by the dealership to ride around 4000 rpm for the first 100 miles or so and then not to worry about it (just don't red line it).

I was also advised by another person that it's good for the first 100 miles to use a lot of high to low and low to high revving (between 0 rpm to 8000 rpm). They said the engine parts seat better due to the rpm pressure inside the engine. Which makes a lot of sense to me. They also recommended getting the oil changed way way before the 600 miles as the owners manual states. Which also makes sense to me. Anyone know for sure???
