You kidding? 4000 rpm is way too much for a virgin engine. Take it smooth, start with a 2500 rpm limit for the first couple of hundred kms...and then gradually increase it by a 100 rpm each time. Typically you should spread out the rpm limit such that you are high revving only by 2000+ kms.

And yes, keep varying the speeds. Expressway kind of running in is not recommended.

hey bobby ,
congrats on ur new Flair .a black ikon with alloys always looks good.
and i agree with GTO.
u shud not be going above 2000-2500 rpm atleast for the first 1000kms.the entire life of ur car depends on how u drive it now.
and try to vary ur speeds.

drive safe,
satya
