After you get a few thousand miles under your belt sign up for the IAM Road Smart course, it will improve your observational skills considerably.

When running in my Macan I used the Sport setting which prevented the car changing up into the higher gears so early. Together with a light touch on the throttle this allowed the engine to spin easily and improve the running effect on the engine and transmission components.

Regarding other drivers, I always try to let the idiots get in front of me. Much easier to deal with them defensively when they are in front rather than behind doing something daft. Also, I hope your instructor advised you on maintaining at least a two second gap between you and the car in front, more in poor weather, and when stopped behind another vehicle leaving a gap so you can still see their rear tyres and a little Tarmac. This could provide an escape route from the driver behind who is texting or on Facebook.
