BMW sates that a good break in period is at 4k respectfully.
I know its gonna be hard but Im going to baby my car even after the 1200k service!
I mean after the 1200k Mile Service I will Take it up higher then 5k,
But just not get on it every second and not puch the living crap out of it.
Im still going to baby my car! Im really conservative when it comes to the break in period.
Im still going to take it easy after the 1200k service but not as easy as before 1200k.
How you drive The first 4k miles determines the rest of the life of the motor....
See your already taking it up to 6k and you got a Service light on.

Just seriously take it easy and baby it untill your 1200 miles serive!
If I were you I would still take it easy up till 2k......

Best of Luck

Oppps.. I tried very hard to keep mine under control but its not working out for me so well. Today I was playing with a vette and I had to get all over my M. No fun shifting at 5 G's.... Guess I'll only keep it till 5,000 miles or so anyway
