So I hear from a buddy of mine that as soon as his new M5 hit 1200 miles, it became a completely different animal. A much scarier, more intense animal.

Anybody else hear this? Perhaps there's a built-in computer break-in that ends at 1200 miles?

Thats probably a good guess. I would imagine that you would want to take all precautionary steps to break in a v-10 with 40 valves...i love this engine

Yeah, a diferent animal because then you can actually floor it and not have to worry about crap.

If I bought one, I'd spend the whole first 24 hours breaking it in ... that way I could go to sleep after that, and when I wake up, I could do what I want with the car. :)
