I just took delivery of my 2020 AWD RS. It had four miles on it. After adding seven more to get to my garage, I noticed a strong burnt rubber smell when exiting the vehicle. I took a short drive to the post office the following day (another four miles roundtrip) and noticed the same smell in the garage. Is this some sort of break-in period and after 50 or so miles, the smell goes away? I appreciate any info given.

I noticed this also, after 3,000 miles i can barely smell it in the garage when i walk in, kinda smells like hot metal or hot paint, with a hint of burnt rubber. I thinks its normal.

Well service wanted to keep the car to check the smell out, but my salesman told me it's normal and would dissipate after 100 miles. I added five miles to the ODO to get it past 50 and noticed the smell was barely present when I exited the vehicle. I'm satisfied that it's a break-in smell.
