    a good service including fuel filter and spark plugs, a full tank of 99ron fuel and correct tyre pressures will all help on a rolling road.

    I tend to clean out all breathers, add an additive to the fuel for a higher octane rating, clean out your throttle body (not really nessasary, but it's just part of my routine ) make sure all the clips are on tight and all the vaccuum hoses are on properly etc, correct tyre pressures, and make sure they take out your traction control fuse (they should anyway with the knowledge at Red Dot)

    Apart from that, have fun!
