Are you saying that I'm not driving my car enough?
I rode my 2.8 hard and I've decided to baby my M Roadster.
I got it with 24 miles (it was sitting in the dealers showroom for God only knows how long), and I've actually had it for oh...3 days, so maybe not a full week.:)
: First problem: 100 miles the first week? What gives?
: Secondly, this is very normal. My 2.8 does this after spirited driving. Hell, my Intrepid 3.5l does it too. I suspect it is a mix between hot metal, cat, etc. Nothing is wrong with your car. Just needs to be driven more.
: Good luck.
