I don't think there's a pre-programmed change but I could be wrong. Quite a few MKV owners have noted that the car feels more powerful over 1K. Apparently you notice a further increase at around 5k and again at 10k which is where the engine is pretty much fully run in. MKV's often roll off the production line under powered (some only producing 230 BHP) but this figure rises as the engine "relaxes". I don't own a MKV R32 (yet) so I'm only going on what I've read but I hope the above helps.

Definitely felt quicker after 1-2000 miles. Now got ~3500, so looking forward to passing 5 and 10!!!

Have started using V-Power fuel instead of the usual low sulphur unleaded - should also have something to do with it maybe?
