Beautiful car- very pleased.

Not had a car from new before... I asked the sales guy about running in- he said no need these days. He also said performance and mpg would only become optimal after a couple of thousand miles. Curious if that's true?

The manual says to drive gently for the first 1500km. I recommend an intermediate approach ensuring you vary the RPM and load as much as you can.
If you do give it a good fanging in the first wee while, just make sure all the oils and fluids are up to operating temp first
