I did not follow the factory procedure. I followed my own procedure which has worked well on every BMW I've owned because I add less oil than everyone else!

Even my built motor was broken in hard so the rings can sit in there tight

I intentionally put 10k miles on the new motor using 10W60 and i burnt 1/2 a quart with serious hard driving and revving up to 8800rpm
