    I recall this being discussed in the forum when the car first came out. It's true, no formal break-in procedure appears in (at least the early versions of) the manual. At the time, all LSAs were broken in at the factory, so the engine was good to go from mile 1 (I have no reason to believe this still isn't true)--however, this didn't mean the rest of the drivetrain was broken-in as well. So it seems prudent to take it easy for the first several hundred miles to break-in the tranny and differential and bed in the brake pads and so forth (I know you're leasing, but just sayin').

    BTW, whenever you disconnect the battery, you might want to reset the TPS (that procedure is in the manual )

    [QUOTE=Stop&Turnfreak;3330834]Take the car to the dealer, I bought a used 09, and it felt really sluggish compared to some others I had ridden in, and thankfully, it had a full warranty. The car was retuned at the dealer, and has run great ever since. I may still modd it, as my warranty days are numbered, but for now, I am very happy with the car. More than likely, you are just getting used to the car. Take a break, drive another car for a week or two, and then get back in, I promise you will find your missing performance.[/QUOTE what was wrong with the car?

    One other possible cause of a loss of performance has been (over the past few years) a boost bypass valve that isn't closing all the way and bleeding off boost. You could tell by your boost gauge reading less than it did at WOT when things were working like you expected. This however would not have fixed itself with disconnecting the battery so it definately could have been the fuel map.
