ayousef is an unknown quantity at this point
Hi guyz,

I just got my 6 Series about a week ago , and the sales person in the showroom said that the engine doesnt need training, except that it is preferable not to go speed above 120 Kmph. Now the Manual, says not to drive the car above 160Kmph, and not above 4500 RPM, is this even neccessary?

As for me, I tried not to get the rpm over 4500 for sometime, and today after driving it about 850KMs, i did get the rpm to over 4500 about 5-6 times, is it that bad?

Anyone who has experience?

Thanks in advance.
