My '99 M3 coupe stated on the sticker on the inside of the windshield:
First 1200 miles:
No full throttle
No going past 5500 rpm
No going faster than 106mph
No going 137mph for extended periods.
Gee, that last one will be hard to stick to here in the states. ;) I did exceed 5500 rpms about a dozen times before 1200 miles but only to make sure I got into traffic safely. I think the engine will live. I changed the oil at 1800 miles but it's not scheduled until the service lights come on (I'm told between 7000 and 9000 miles usually).
: Just curious, what are the procedures for breaking into new Bimmers? Thanks!
