I always follow manual recommendation and take sensible approach with every new vehicle , slowly increasing the load up to 1k miles. Then have an oil change and of we go :thumbsup:
Oh btw, I did learn today that there are no limits to launch control starts for warranty
@Gareth350 is going to be quite confused and surprised about this news :lol:

As soon as you get the keys I would drive over the salesman foot after you have selected launch control of course then drift round the petrol forecourt twice and hit maximum revs as you fly up the road. If that doesn't appeal then take it easy for the first 100 miles and slowly increase the rev limit for at least 500 miles then give it the beans but only in small doses.

I would always run a car in if it was recommended or not at least for 1k miles, Nothing can be as bad as my old mans evo viii when he got it was something ridiculous like 5k miles and a service if my memory serves me correctly! ( I was only 11 at the time)

I'm sure all of us will be taking unnecessary trips to the shop for the 'milk' which has ran out for the 5th time this week :rofl:
