I am new to the board and plan on taking delivery of a C230K within the next week. What should I do (or not do) for the break-in, how long is it, etc?<br>
<br>
You guys have a great resource here and I am looking forward to being a part of it.<br>
<br>
Thanks.

Hey Jo! (almost like the Jimi Hendrix song :))<br> <br> Welcome on board.<br> <br> This is what I've been told about breaking-in the C-class:<br> <br> First 1000 miles: Don't rev over 4000 RPMs. Vary the revs as much as possible (ie. don't drive on constant revs for long periods, typically, don't use the cruise control). After this your car should be properly breaked-in.<br> <br> /DtS

Also Refrain from using touchshift/kickdown agreassively for first 1000kms. FYI it takes 7000kms to fully 'break-in' a Benz.
