you puss.. drive your car. you drive a bmw, not a benz. drive it! remember bmw's slogan: Ultimate Driving Machine!

and sure, the higher and longer your car stays in higher rpms the harder the engine has to work but I wouldn't say it's bad for it. that's how your car was bred.

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 actually encourages its drivers to "drive spiritedly" (spelling). it keeps the engine in good shape.

And it keps BMW's financial situation in good shape too.

3000 rpm is what you should do in reverse.

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.

Haha, you reverse like a granny.

I wonder if there's an aftermarket mod for adding a 2nd reverse gear?

For everday driving I usually shift at 3-3.5k, but I always max out my gears at least a few times a day

I think shifting rpms is offset by at least 1,000 depending if there's a girl in the car or not.
