I'm still breaking in my stradale. I have about 300 miles on it now I don't believe in babying a car during the break in period, but I don't believe in going nuts the first 600 miles either. Although I only have 300 miles on the stradale I can tell already that it is by far the best car that I've ever driven. Period. The 360 modena is great also, but the stradale is spectacular. Tight, crisp, glued to the road, solid, great exhaust sounds and yet comfortable to drive around town. What a car Btw, if you can view this video clip I was in race mode up to about 6000 RPMs (I'm still breaking it in and there was traffic ahead of me). But you can get a sense of how it sounds very good! I will make more videos in tunnels, etc. in a couple of weeks after I break in the engine completely. Then I'll blast it up to 8500 RPMs I can't wait to hear that!
