Ok, then drive that way.

I do not know the shifting jargon you speak of.

Just saying I need to drive conservatively as the M4 wants to break 6k revs anytime I give it some gas. My normal driving would be faster start ups. Probably not going to hurt a little, but I am trying to keep it reasonable until after 1st service.

Seriously wouldn't worry about it. The worst thing for a car with no miles is heat. Yes getting on it causes more heat, but sitting in traffic for instance is so much worse for it.

Never get on it until the oil is fully warm. But seriously, beyond that I wasn't at all much concerned with break in.

About 500 miles so far. Runs great...had the first real rain and noticed a creaking sound around the passenger door. Hopefully it'll go away as it dries up. Other than that a great comfortable car...

11,000 miles, 10 track days on mine so far. Been really solid. Car will not overheat no matter what conditions you run it in. I've done track days in 100degree heat and oil temps don't even budge. Its a fun track car, but even better street car / fun car IMO. All that torque its a handful / little tail happy when running at the track (all DSC off). MDM mode too intrusive so you have to learn to run all DSC off on the track. I leave MDM on when on the street though out of respect, otherwise no traction until 3rd gear.

Small gripes:
-Front calipers turned dark olive green due to heat at the track
-H&K speakers already blown in rear door panels
-Wish rev match feature was separate on/off

Yes, I would buy it again. There is not a better all around fun/fast/comfortable/yet trackable car out there.

Are you saying the rev match can only be disabled along with other features?

Great car, very comfortable. Only gripes I got is
-initially had a creaking problem every time I went over a bump or driving on uneven roads (dealer repaired it)
- front end is pretty low, so you got to be careful coming out of driveways (approach at an angle), and stop short on parking spaces so you don't hit your front lip
-rear brake shields had to be adjusted to avoid any sounds of rocks rolling around the disc brakes
- Been a good vehicle so far with 15k on it.....

It can not be disabled from what I know.

I am now at 42,000 miles. Still not a single problem or hiccup.

Rev match is disabled in sport+ mode and enabled in sport and efficient modes. Cannot be turned on/off independently.
