    Just make sure your cars fluid levels are all ok, put a clean air filter in if it's not been done recently.

    Be aware too that AFTER the rolling road run, your traction control/abs lights may be on. The ECU senses the rear wheels aren't moving and assumes you're skidding and errors the ABS system, it resets normally after a couple of miles of normal driving and is quite normal.

    As above, but if it was me i'd check your Oil and fluid levels etc. Simple checks, maybe front tyre pressures as well.

    After all they are pushing the engine so to speak.

    All as above. Just enjoy it. Remember my first R/R in my old 2.0T. I was amazed by how much got cleaned out of the exhaust system when the tester put the hammer down.

    It'll be interesting to see what you get from yours.

    Remember to put your fingers in your ears and your camera in your mouth to get a short movie clip.
    Who's doing it for you? What rollers are they using?
