    If the car was running correctly, not using much oil, and had good compression I would by it regardless of what the PO did (you will never know what they did in the vast majority of cases anyway)

    I was just wondering guys, not to bring up the whole "break in" debate up again but ... in the manual it says not to exceed 4k rpm and at 4k rpm in 5th gear that is about 100. Would going 100 mph be too much for a break in or is that okay? I just want to know just to know, i'm not going to go out and do it right now or anything like that, just out of curiousity... that is all.

    Brakes usually take a few hundred miles to break in properly so I would say 100MPH, which is an unsafe speed on public roads anyway, is especially so if you are still breaking in new brakes
