Gentle driving (no launches) for about 800km to 1000km's, then just drive normal.

agreed same as breaks really be as gentle as you can and then from 1000klms on get more and more aggressive.

You dont bed in brakes by going gentle on them.. quite the opposite really.

lots of stop n go traffic... take the small streets to work/school/commute/etc. you want to be on n. off the clutch as much as possible!

Thats what my clutch masters instructions recommended. 500 miles of stop and go traffic with as little engine braking as possible. No hard launches or starts. So be easy on it, but use it a lot.
