My 2009 Clio had 156 on the clock when I collected it but I'd been told it was coming on a red plate (I'd ordered a basic with options and then the salesman called me to say he'd had a buyer pull out post-build, pre-delivery and he had a mid-range Clio in my colour with all my options as standard and few extras I could have for the same money - not surprising as, post-build, the deposit was forfeit so they probably made a bigger profit than they would've on my original buy) so wasn't surprised. The salesman assured me that the delivery driver would observe the run-in speed.I used to repair them after coming off the docks at Bristol.
Time is of the essence and the minimum wage drivers that they employ don't hang about.
I cannot blame them, as the quicker they get the delivery done the more they get paid.
Don't be fooled into thinking that the new car you just shelled out for has been lovingly treated.
I doubted it.
However, it seems modern engines don't really need the running-in like old ones did...
