Is this true?

I read in someones video description on YouTube who did an acceleration test of the 328i (that was not run in!!) that during the run-in procedure (before 1200mls), the car restricts itself to 160kw of power as the maximum available, not the full 180kw. This can't be true can it? I have read the owners manual for it and can see no mention of the power being restricted pre-run in.

That would be cool, especially if the extra power suddenly came on tap as you were flooring it through the 1200 mile barrier!

Sounds to good to be true...

I don't think that is right is it. I might flame him. I've already flamed him for going WOT to the red-line on a car with only 200km on the clock!
