    Thanks, removed the ribbon as soon as I saw your message.
    During the run-in, I'm trying to keep the rpm below 2.5k and idling at the first start of the day and last stop. Is there anything else i need to keep in mind?

    I never followed that idling thing in the beginning until I reached 400 kms.

    Then after understanding the concept of turbo charger (essential part in diesel engine), I have been following it religiously :)

    It's advisable to idle when you do a cold start, that is when the temperature needle is sleeping on C mark.

    Also, after a spirited driving when you come to a halt, the turbo charger still keeps running (momentum) and sudden switching off of the ignition causes the damage to the turbo charger. :)

    Hence, always after the drive, no matter what, I keep the engine idle for a minute and then turn the ignition off :) that way I eliminate the risk of pre mature turbo charger failure.

    I might be technically incorrect but that's the best I could understand after reading on the forums and the owner's manual !!

    Cheers !!
