Yeah.. I take her to 5.5K RPM plus.. Should bed the rings in better. Might just wait till the 2K service to change the oil as I wont be tracking.
Sell him the 10W60...it ain't cheap suff!
Once warmed up I drove my 135i hard up to 6k RPMs during break-in, oil changed around 200kms and then 1000kms.... it doesn't use oil now. Done this method with past few motorcycles too... works for me.
Thing is brakes and diff need to wear in so no hard smoking stops and starts... that's my 2c worth... enjoy it!
