New to MFlight

Hello everyone,

I just took delivery of my '12 Interlagos Blue M3 Coupe a couple of weeks ago. Will and George at Pentagon Car Sales were great, and Peter at Autohaus Euler was amazing.

I'm new to MFlight (and M cars in general) but this has been a dream of mine for a long time. I'm be needing the 1200 mile service soon and was told to buy the 9 quarts of 10W60 ahead of time, or risk getting burned at the dealer. A couple folks on the forum mentioned getting it at ATU- can anyone tell me where (or what) this is? Or any other suggestions on where to pick some up? Thanks!

Patrick

ATU is the acronym for Auto-Teile-Unger which is a German car parts store along the same lines as JC Whitney. Keep your M away from there... Plus, you would pay some really stupid price for the oil. Think about how much a gallon of euro gas goes for... ya... So, go to the AAFES Car Care Center on base and get them to either order you a case or they may have it on hand. A lot of the CCC on the installations here are carrying 10w60 due to the large amount of M3 on the road now... And fairly so as they charge from $12-14per quart which is a decent price but $$$ nonetheless... Anyway, welcome to the M family, enjoy Germany in your autobahn cruiser, stay safe, and thanks for serving the good ole US of A!

Thanks for the heads up. I didn't know AAFES could order "specialty" oil. They seem to have a hard time keeping the 5W30 I need for my wife's SUV on hand, but I'll check to be sure. This break-in period is killing me, but I'm following all the rules. Can't wait to let this baby loose for real.....

Nice ride! M-DCT?

I asked at the Ramstein BX car desk and they just happened to have a case of the TWS 10w60 in the back room. So bought all of it for less money than I would have paid for it back in Canada. Win!

It brought my 1st service cost down to 130 Euro at Landstuhl Euler. I have M-DCT so if you have a 6-sp Manual, it will cost you a little more (Tranny oil change only for 6-spd, not DCT)...

Enjoy - maybe see you at one of the (many) upcoming M-Flight events!

Congrats on your new car. You made the right choice ! M3 V8 is already a ///M legend with its super design and epic engine (last n/a ///M engine)

Carbon Roof is a great choice.

As for the first service, I just got mine done a few weeks ago.

They make the oil service, brake fluid, and differential oil services. Some people also had experienced a transmission fluid service, but a number of them had problems. My dealer did not apply a transmission service to my car.

And please find a trustful dealer to take your car to service
