After run in

Post by Alan Mc » Sun Aug 12, 2018 9:29 am

Hi all.

Had my car about 3 Months now and today I will hit 1000 miles and I recall someone on here say that is the run miles.

Will I notice any difference in the car after I hit the 1000 miles mark ?

My car has been going great since vw fixed my faulty grearbox and next week I’m taking it for the first long drive.

Thanks in advance

620 miles (approx 1000km) is the big run-in step as far as VW engine management software is concerned. You should've noticed a step-up then.

Although the step up will be less noticaboe assuming that you have a 95HP, due to the lower power and torque there's less of a need to restrict it. The GTI is another matter. Which car do you have?

Thanks guys. Yh I have the GTI+. Maybe I have just been having to much fun to notice the power step up lol. Still makes me smile every time I leave Mr Audi and Mr BMW for dust at the traffic lights. They always look really P’d off.
