Re: Whats the best running in procedure on 2.0
take it easy under 3Krpm for 500-1000 miles, with odd excusion when warm to 4K, then next 500miles 4K with odd trip to 5K, then overe the next 1000miles ease it up to 6K then go for it.
basically you are stretching it in over appx 3000 miles, gradually taking it further, like a muscle really
advise varies but there are lots of websites with 'rules'
some would say you don't need to these days, but is it worth the risk?
also allows you to get used to the car - most write off's are new cars under 1 YO!
