    Question Break in period before Velocityap tune on new 2019 RRS?

    So I am picking up my 2019 RRS in a few weeks and want to do the Velocityap tune to it ASAP.

    What would you say is the recommended break-in period before getting this done?

    This is a good question, and relative to my interests as well. Hopefully someone can chime in.

    Something to consider, from the owners manual:

    BREAKING-IN
    The vehicle is built using high-precision manufacturing methods, but the moving parts of the engine must still break-in, relative to each other. The process occurs mainly in the first 2 000 miles (3 000 km) of operation.
    During this breaking-in period of 2 000 miles (3 000 km), observe and follow the instructions below:

    • Do not fully press the accelerator pedal during starts and normal driving.
    • Avoid high engine speeds (rpm) until the engine has reached its full operating temperature.
    • Avoid laboring the engine by operating the engine in too high a gear at low speeds.
    • Gradually increase engine and road speeds.
    • Avoid continuous operation at high engine speed and abrupt stops.
    • Avoid frequent cold starts followed by short-distance driving.
    • Preferably take longer trips.
    • Do not participate in track days, sports driving schools, or any similar events.

    Right but since its, the same engine as the SVR, shouldn't really matter if it's breaking in with a few more hp

    Exactly. Just keep your foot out of it until the break-in period is over.
