Question run in question

hi everyone

picked up my car last week. it has 900km on the clock. what a beaut. i know they will activate the launch control on the 2000km service, and dont get me wrong, i am not complaining about power, but i am just curios to know if i am getting the full power now, or will their be more after the fisrt service?

regards

the power is always there before break in service, just that many of us would nanny the beast before break in and keep it below 5k rpm, but the most exciting part of the engine is 4.5k - 7k range, the torque is really brutal, and this is something you would do after break in, so create the impression the engine produces more power after break in service

my 2 cents

I was told by service controller (not front desk clerks) that it runs on less power and it is set to normal on run in service.

That's in the UK so no idea for rest of world.

Nope. All cars have full engine power from day 0
No such thing as limited power during break in
