    Hey manju, first of all congrats on acquiring your Italian beauty.

    Linea and punto are the most appealing of the lot.
    I still old grande puntos design is timeless. I have one, it brings a big smile when i take her to her own territory ie. Highways. Just amazing.
    Enjoy many miles on it.
    Congrats once again.

    I believe that driving strategy for run in period is indepent of speed of car, perhaps it depends on speed of engine i.e. rpm & not km/h.

    Manju, nothing to worry, just ride normally. Don't give too much throttle and don't give sudden acceleration (racing. :D) and proper gears are important. Rest it needs to be given sufficient (moderate) acceleration, else too little and it could stall, esp. if engine has not warmed up.

    For top gear (5th) try to do very moderate acceleration. For speed perhaps 100-110 max. as it is mandatory to maintain speed on some roads, like expressways. Else keep in slower lanes if you want to drive even slower.
