I am having an argument with someone in my office. They say that you should drive the hell out of the car during break-in period. I have never heard anyone say this before, is this true??
I have heard some sort of school of thought that if you drive the engine hard during break-in, you get more power or something out of the engine. But downside is that the car will burn more oil during it's life. anyone else hear something like this?

But I think the majority will agree - follow the break-in rules, and your engine will last a longer and will be more trouble free.
