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