I signed the finance last evening.  Car ready to pick up tomorrow evening.

Interestingly the insurance was £12 cheaper on the new car, which was promptly swallowed by the £12 admin fee.  Dealers have to jump through hoops with the insurance companies to get proof of insurance to tax the car due to new rules.

So I should be driving the 2017 from tomorrow evening.  It will be a killer to keep it under 4k for a 1000 miles again.  I think I will end up doing what I did with the last one and keep it under 4k 99% of the time and gradually introduce it to hooligan mode more and more often as the miles increase.

Fantastic news Paul. All the best with the new baby and i will be keenly looking forward to your feedback on the differences between the two models, over and above what we can see and read... from someone who has lived the old one and is well qualified to comment. Best wishes

I wouldn't worry, just make sure it's really warm before revving it up. There's an argument that rubbing a new engine at high RPM helps seal the bores more effectively.

Not revving. But be sure to give it full throttle and thus torque at lower revs (3-4k) once hot now and then. The valvetrain may not fully enjoy full revs early on.

I expect a full report on the subjective changes. And last but not least, congrats :)

The other school of thought is that you should run it in for the first 1k... but until the engine is warm do not take it over 4k revs. After engine is warm you should take it above, but don't red line at all. Up to 6k is fine, but basically avoid staying at a constant RPM for example motorway driving. Have to keep the RPM variable.

Toyota run the engine in at the factory no? to get rid of any imperfections, ive always gone upto 4k for 500 miles and then full beans after that.

You shouldn't be ragging an engine from cold regardless of age or mileage.
Avid detailer, happy to help with any Q's.
