Is running in even a thing nowadays?!?

Is there an oil change around 1000 miles?

Last car I had that needed run in was an e92 m3 which had oil changed as 1200.

Probably not mate I’m just going with what Harry said. Always give car oil change every 6000 mile and full service every 12000 mile

The E92 M3 must have a running in service because it is fill with mineral oil from the factory, specifically for running in, and it will damage the engine to leave it in for longer than 1200 miles.

Pretty much every other car is fill with the engines standard oil from the factory, so it isn't necessary, but personally I still do it just incase there are any microscopic pieces of swarf left within the engine from the manufacturing process.

Nice one. I'm a couple of weeks in but order (black) got held up due (I was told) to the Recaros no longer being an option (tell that to the configurator). September I was told - should have started this earlier...
