    I can just remember my dad following new cars with "running in " signs in their back windows driving very slowly. When did that practice finally stop? Usually meant my dad muttering and overtaking at his first opportunity....got him in lots of trouble in his later years at roundabouts as he didn't always check to see if the car in front of him had actually moved on LOL

    Not seen that in years, all modern cars do not need running in.
    But servicing now is not easy to do as a DYI hobby, most are now too sophisticated to even consider apart from an oil change, but even that is not easy on some.
    Cannot do it on my Land Rover as it requires a special tool to get to it.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    My Dad was a scrap merchant so had loads of different cars that were still "runners" come into the yard, this of course meant he always had free motoring (never bothered with tax/insurance) we often went to Cornwall for camping holidays in whatever vehicle was available, many times we had to reverse up steep hills because the engines were never powerful enough in 1st gear, and had to push on really steep hills. Happy Daze
