After 600 miles I get a call from BMW saying my car "says" it is time for service. It had 750(ish) miles when I dropped it off this morning for the first oil change. Does this first service complete the break-in or is it the full 1200 that I need to wait for?
No you are fine... it varies from car to car and depends on a lot of different variables. I took mine in at 1000, I've seen others at 700, others at 1300. Enjoy that first 8000rpm gear change... it is epic
