Get a few hundred kms up & you should not have any issues with going over 4.5k from time to time. I haven't had any issues.

Have a go of the flappy paddles. Talk about instant gear changes. the 8SP ZF is terrific. As an example of how the car works, keep it in Comfort, use the paddles and after around 5 seconds without FP gear changes, the tranny will default back to D mode. A nice way to ease into using the manual mode.

I laughed when I saw the photo of your car covered and the uncovered car with the congratulatory sign. I never had that treatment. Very nice.

Like many of us here, do yourself and you car a favour and have the glaze removed and get the paintwork detailed and sealed. Then invest in some 2 bucket washing accessories and wash & clean the car yourself.
