dude its a BMW, the ulimate driving machine. Drive it, I rev my car uptill 6200 rpm countless times in a day. I have'nt had any engine problems since I owned the car, that was 78000 kms ago. The engines are built solid.
if you never use the power your car has, YOU WILL LOOSE IT!!!!
im serious, you do need to "feed a little speed to your ride".........if you don't, then your car wears into a groove and high rpms are harder because your car isnt used to
reving up and its like a big rough spot in the engine.
like jrhaile said.....BMW is not for people who drive like a puss...
GO, PLAY, HAVE FUN! LET BMW GET YOU THERE EARLY AND ENJOY ALL THE FREE TIME YOU HAVE!!!
BMW engines were designed and are happiest with high revs.
If you keep changing gears at those rpm's you'll end up creating carbon in your engine's combustion chamber .... and that's not good for your engine.
I'm not suggesting you race your engine ALL the time, but you should definately "exercise it" a few times a week.
