I typically do this with all my systems, let's be honest the Demo cars where all broken in based off many users and I bet some abuse. (I listened to 3 different Pre-production cars). Someone mentioned Lotus upgraded the amp or something I can't remember who mentioned it, maybe on another forum I am not sure if that is true or false. This production car felt different when it came to sound & speakers. It was not broken in at all as not many people been in the car even the dealer. Like I mentioned it was not super spectacular but good enough to pass a minimum of 50+ % of the new owners. I can't wait till others get their cars to get other feedback.This sounds about right for a new system that hasn't been broken-in yet. Give it about 25+ hours of listening, and the sound should warm up with a little more volume and sound richer. High-end speakers need this, and they may very well have a volume limiter on it until listening hours have reached a certain number.
I'm definitely going to have my system on while I drive around for the 1,000 mile break-in period. It will be interesting to see what happens.
