Not bad review, did you notice that reviews are pretty rare ? i'm talking about review like this, as everybody has been invited for the press review in portugal, but since then nothing new...

the 1.5D is a great engine, it's not powerful but it offers a huge comfort for daily driving, and you can do 900 miles with a full tank !

That's a bit lower than the official figure of 50mpg. Guess it went down a bit after you broke it in?
I'm actually thinking that might be because it's not broken in enough. I'd say if after 5000 miles that it doesn't improve, then chances are that's what it's going to be like throughout the rest of its life.

I think after 5000 will be a bit better. There are the numbers from my car at the moment:
Cruising 30mph: over 60 mpg
50mph: around 50-60
70mph: around 40-50
90mph: around 35-40
Have not tried over 100 yet...

I will update those numbers later.:D

How you drive it mightr factor in as well. I heard you have to drive it hard for short periods of time then revert to driving it normally... all just to ensure compression is built up to seat the pistions.

I heard the opposite... Below 3500 miles have to drive more gently...

Is this for the break in period? Usually, I've heard that you need to be gentle while breaking it in.

Yes. But the transition into higher RPM's should be smooth. not like you're trying to get the fastest 0-60 time.
What I have heard is drive the car gently, do not go too fast, do not break too hard, do not push the RPM too high as well.

If she wants fun she can go test out the Q30 S. The base Q30 is more for a premium ride with all the interior bells and whistles.

Although I know some people only like to buy cars as they are without making changes, the chance for tunes to come is possible especially with this being the brands entry-level model. If the Q30S checks all the boxes but just has that one left... this may be a route to consider going down.
