Aww, but this one is special; how about “pumpkin”? Nah, just stick with “it” because if anything goes wrong you can just add “sh” ;)

Can’t wait to see it!

My build week looks to be delayed too 😡 was told mid to end of March but that seems unlikely at this point without a stage 3 notice yet.

Is it Friday that you usually get the stage 3 or is that just coincidence that I’ve seen others have had theirs on a Friday (along with my first T-Roc last year)?

I think its Friday yes.
It could still happen for March, can be as little as four weeks before it's scheduled when they text you.

Hi Impala,
Thanks for your additional hint. Actually I got this guideline from manual ( I always do read most important info about the car I have) so there is actually nothing about the 50 mph mark but wont do any harm to stick to this rule :D .
There is already 240 miles done and sometimes hit 60 -70 mph but only few mins.
Manual says max speed about 118 mph so 2/3 of this would be 78 mph - still a decent margin.
The manual certainly refers to running in new tyres for the first 600km (search for 'new tyres' in your PDF viewer) and I think I've read elsewhere of a 50 mph recommended speed.

I think you will find the manual refers to 2/3 of the maximum engine speed which I take as meaning engine revs. If you use 6000 rpm as a maximum, then you should not rev the engine above 4000 rpm for the first 1500km, but I prefer to keep it under 3000 rpm and using very gentle acceleration. You should also avoid labouring the engine, so aim to keep the revs above 1500 rpm and change down a gear if it drops below that. When accelerating, if you change up a gear when you get above 2000 rpm than that should keep you in the 1500-3000 rpm window.
