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!
