In Reply to: Short Block Break-In Period? posted by Frank on March 29, 1999 at 10:52:13:
Wouldn't hurt to keep the revs below 5000 for the first 1200 miles. After that, change the oil with synthetic and maintain it that way for life.
Also, use premium unleaded fuel, as BMW intended.
: Just picked up my '95 540ia with the block replacement, and was wondering if there is a break-in period for the new block, and, if so, what is the break-in procedure? Thanks.
