I'm new here, first post etc..
I was just wondering roughly how long would a car normally take for the engine to start to 'run in' and loosen up?
Picked up my brand new A3 Sportback 1.6TDI SLine Stronic in Daytona Grey yesterday!
At the moment, the engine does feel slightly tight, which is obviously to be expected as it only has 30 miles on the clock!
Am I right to assume that I will start to see an increase in MPG over time, when the engine hasn't literally just left the showroom?
I've read a few interesting threads here around MPG and the Audi Drive Select. This morning's run to work (18 miles), I managed to get 53mpg with the ADS in Efficiency, and I was driving it like I was scared to use the accelerator!! I did expect a little more to be honest, but it's better than the old car!
I think I'm going to pop the ADS into Auto instead of Efficiency, as I think a few people have commented that it's a better drive and throttle response, and some have actually achieved better MPG in Auto. The Efficiency mode does seem rather a dull drive in terms of having the press the accelerator quite hard to actually move at all.
I'm just interested in everyone thoughts and experiences
