It's so tempting to floor it before 1000 km though. I am in the same position now too but my car only has 160km. 840km more to go.....The manual states to avoid heavy acceleration for the 1st 1000 km.

Doesn't Honda still have high Moly in their factory fill? Normally, they recommend you keep the factory fill in till the MM hits 15% or lower. This helps the break in of the motor and having a longer life.
