I have the new benz c 230 kompresser sports sedan and i have 1000 miles on it so far in a span of 2 weeks lol.... and i was just wondering... i redlined it twice and the rpn line dropped down by itself when it hit the peak without me even changing the gears.. now it happend to me twice... I know it has an automatic cutoff that will lower the line when it gets to its highest point but will it mess up the engine if it happend twice? Im so nervous i feel that i messed up the cylinders lol

One way to find out when the break in period ends is to read the operator's manual. It will tell you to stay under 4000 rpm for the first 1000 miles. Or is it stay under 1000 rpm for the first 4000 miles?[;)]
