After the 1200 miles break in, there is a second break in till 3000 miles, correst me if I am wrong but after the 1200 miles we can rev to the red line and use S6?......and the second is purely for top end limitations?

You are supposed to be pretty gentle until 1200 miles, keeping the rpms down and using S4/D4 or slower shift modes. Once you get the 1200 mile service, then you can gradually bring up the max rpms you drive to as you get towards 3100 miles. After 3100 miles, let 'er rip!
