Helo from the north. Just ordered an 05, 530i spt pkg, prm snd, smg, etc... questions are;
1) Any comments on the recomedations of not going over 4000rpms for 1200miles when it first arives? 1200 miles seems like an awful lot before being able to open it up and let it really run. My idea was to take a long road trip up north in Alaska and get the 1000 miles out of the way. It will be in mid January so the engine shouldnt get too hot with it 35 below. Any thoughts on if that cold temp would be bad for the engine on a long drive early in the cars.
2) Any one with one of the 04, 05 530is that lives in snow country that got the sports package? I called areally helpfull fella at tiretracks.com who i think must be near chicago or something, and he assured me that if i put the blizzak tires on it will perform awesome in the snow. I went ahead and ordered it with the package but would love some advice from someone with experience in snow climates with the sport package. I live in Anchorage so the roads are pretty good, but i do travel to ski country each weekend. In Anchorage there is alot of ice and ski country lots of snow. I havent ordered the tires yet because i have to wait until jan to get my ride so any imput on blizzaks for the snow/ice conditions would be great.
3) Look wise has anyone added the spoiler to their new model 530i? Have the choice but havent seen one in person and wanted some input on ordering one and having it installed here.
4) BMW just swithched hands up here to a Lithia dealership and they offer for a couple of hundred bucks some kind of process where they remove the outerlayer over the paint of the car and put on a clear ceramic application that is suposed to keep the car super shiny for seven years or something like that, any input on that?

Thanks and cheers from the North!
