<strong>It hard to believe that the Engine Management "adapts" itself to your driving style... please explain !

If you regularly drive on a motorway - fifth gear, part throttle, your engine adapts to that.
There is a way of resetting the ECU by disconnecting the battery - the Search button will show it up, but the word is that it will adapt after 100 miles or so....
If it isn't that, it could just be one of those things! I had a 145QV with 150bhp (brochure figure) which was much faster than my current 155 model... go figure!
Do you have sunroof/air con/airbags which could add significantly more weight to yours over the loaner??
