Hi all,

I am totally new to this and would really appreciate your help on this.

I recent took delivery of my 2024 macan s, I just passed my driving test last week and this is also my first car.

I am not confident enough to go on long road trips, I am currently only using the car to do daily school run, which is about 15 minutes drive each way. Occationally over the weekend, I will do a 40 minutes drive to the mall.

The speed I am driving is between 10 - 40 mph.

Is this considering bad during break-in period?

Lots of short trips is not ideal during the break in period.

If possible try to get some longer trips in, with a variety of speeds.

But I wouldn’t get too stressed about it!

As above, wouldn't worry too much about it -

But if you're curious enough to make a thread about it - make sure you get a good variety of speeds up to motorway speed, with a variety of load. Don't spank it, but up to 5k RPM is fine for the first few hundred miles.

Then let it rip - foot to the floor!

Keeping below 4000rpm will easily get you over 70 mph if you're concerned about the speed.

Porsche advice is avoid going over 4k rpm for the first 1,865 miles (3k km) and longer trips avoiding frequent cold starts.

Ah 4k is it. I generally ignored that, in London sometimes you have to commit to a merge which means making progress!

I like to "take it easy" for the first 1000 miles which includes brakes.

As said, I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Macan is far too posh for your first car :lol: :lol:

As an ex Driving Instructor I can tell you that whilst you have passed your driving test you are only just starting to learn to drive.

So do take it easy and assume everyone on the road is an idiot without a driving license and with no insurance.

Ensure that the engine warms up each time, even if it means going from A to B via the long way, you will soon learn that with a Porsche this action is pretty normal.

Keep engine revs below 4000 and avoid long periods of driving at a constant speed.

Enjoy your Macan

It's also good to bed in the brakes and tyres to get the best life from them. The speeds you are currently doing is ideal for this. You don't say how many miles that you've done in it to date. But you’ve probably already covered this by now.

😉 Enjoy your new Macan
