You guys with the newer GDI turboed 1.4 engines should not have to worry about LSPI unless you tune the precautionary code out of the ECM.s .

Todays oils with high flash point tolerances minumizes the possibility of LSPI from windowing a engine block ..

There are other concerns about preignition though .
Connecting rod ends have been letting go under the stresses of preignition ..

1 should also remember that this phenomena is a rare instance that can happen when going to full throttle from a low speed and low RPM .
change your oil regularly ...
