A bit related to the other break in topic posted. Mine is in KMS and not MILES, but the manul says 2000 KMS break in period, converts to roughly 1600 MILES.
Anyway, I have had many other cars in the past, all of them japanese, and says 1000 KMS as the break in period, and all of them had to be brought to the dealer for service after the 1000 KM break in period for oil change. The reasoning is because you expect the parts to wear a bit more in the early stages, since the more stress is put in the engine to make the parts work together better.
Since BMW has a count down from 25,000 to 0 and I was told to only bring it in when it is close to 0. This makes me wonder, because I plan to bring it to the track once I break it in...should I bring it in at 2000? or just use it until I reach 0?
I see in the manual that there is Oil Service, Inspeciton 1 and Inspection 2. Should I bring it in for Oil Service when I break it in?
Please help, it is my first Bimmer, and want to keep it as long as I can...what should I do?
