The manual says re-torque after 1000 km (or something thereabout). A
mechanically knowledgable friend says that the re-torque really should
occur after the engine has been properly hot - once is enough for things
This does seem to make some sort of sense to me - it is reasonable to
assume that the 1000 km thing was to make customer relations easier (and
also nicely coinciding with various other service and control tasks due
at that time for a new car).
