Thanks Ian, there is too much tech on this car, mostly unnecessary and the handbook is about as much use as a chocolate teapot.

Strict running in is a thing of the past.
All you have to do is not let the engine labour (almost impossible with DSG) and don't rev the nuts off it. Try to keep it below 4k revs. All for 2k miles, (like wot she sed!)
I believe the tyres and brakes need more running in or bedding in than the engine. As has been suggested just be sensible and don’t “drive it like you stole it” for a couple of thousand miles!
