I wish I could downvote this thread again.
I just downvoted it for you lol. Can't imagine this is a real post. Sounds like someone with time looking for a laugh (at us for responding).

Honestly now im stressed about the whole break in period, I commute 125km every day on the QEW, how am I suppose to go slow on the QEW.
Break in has nothing to do with "going slow" (in fact no aspect of driving has anything to do with that lol). During break in you're just not supposed to drive at one speed for an extended period; also avoid things like redlining and hard acceleration. If you drive in traffic everyday, this will solve the "constant speed" issue since you'll be slowing and accelerating all the time, so that's fine.

There's also the school of thinking that says you should do the opposite and redline the car...but no manufacturer that I've seen recommends that for a 4-stroke IC engine. I recommend you follow the procedure in the manual.

Congrats on the car and make sure to post some pics when you pick it up!

Also, the break in period is about putting varying load on your engine and drivetrain without going too crazy. Speed doesn’t really matter much (assuming you’re going the speed limit). It’s about how you get to that speed.

Drive slowly at first to let your car warm up. Try not to exceed 5K RPM unless you have to for safety reasons and avoid driving long distances with the engine constantly at the same RPM.

Enjoy!

Good.

Enjoy your purchase and be happy. How is Adaptive cruise control on highway bumper to bumper? Does it actually work or do you still have to gas/brake/accelerate/gas/brake etc.

Its amazing, you dont have to, only thing is if your stopped for too long you gotta press the resume cruise button, honestly its life changing.

What tint brand? Is it ceramic?

Enjoy your new ride and the volume knobs.

I actually find the adaptive cruise control is useless, but other new feature is genius such as cross traffic alert, pre-collision alert, etc
