Is he currently in Germany, or was he stationed overseas away from Germany and is waiting to return to Germany, which is what it sounded like, as the ST was to be delivered in Germany and his wife would break it in first until he got back.

Unless I'm mis-reading this.
Great news! Our Focus ST will arrive to Germany in less than 2 months! I will return home from deployment in about 3 months, so it should be there when I got home. I'm very excited. My wife will be there to pick it up, and will be the driver for its first miles My question is, how many miles until the engine/turbo are "broken in?" I told my wife not to beat on the car too much. But after how many miles should she be able to put the pedal down and have some fun on the autobahn? If anyone knows the answer to this obscure question please let me know. Thank you!

Thanks for quoting the manual. Obviously I misremembered the "extensive" bit as saying more than it does.
