This made me laugh. Props to you...


I'm almost ashamed to post the pic below but I took this yesterday (1/10/13). I took delivery on 11/30/12. I took the pic to send to my brothers because they are 311 fans. Anyway, it reminded me that I need to go drive this sucker.

I got to 1200 in my 2009 M3 very quickly but now I have a truck as a 2nd vehicle, and with holiday trips and plenty of rain days here in Houston recently, it's been getting a lot of the driving time. I plan to take some long weekend drives in the M3 soon but the weather isn't cooperating this weekend, either.

You may want to consider a European Delivery for your next BMW.

Anyhow, when you are one of these roads with this sign:



And you see this sign:




Then it's as fast as you can safely travel for the road and traffic conditions.


There are recommended speeds, and there are limits that manufacturers place on their vehicles:


From Wikipedia:

The German autobahns form the nationally coordinated motorway system in Germany. In German, they are officially called Bundesautobahn (plural Bundesautobahnen, abbreviated 'BAB'), which translates to "federal expressways". German autobahns have no general speed limit, but the advisory speed limit (Richtgeschwindigkeit) is 130 kilometres per hour (81 mph).

From Wikipedia:
Some cars with very powerful engines can reach speeds of well over 300 km/h (190 mph). Most large car manufacturers, especially the German ones, follow a gentlemen's agreement by electronically limiting the top speeds of their cars with the exception of some top of the range models or engines to 250 km/h (155 mph). These limiters can be deactivated, so speeds up to 300 km/h (190 mph) might arise on the German autobahn, but due to other traffic, such speeds are generally not attainable. Most unlimited sections of the autobahn are located outside densely populated areas.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_autobahns

I'm definitely getting European delivery for my next M

My ED 08 took 8-9 days to get 2400 miles across Germany/ Switzerland/ France/ Italy. Then the 1200 mile service north of the ring, then the BMW club school at the ring, great time. Unfortunately, ring management/ mismanagement has precluded the school from happening the past several years.

Had mine in for service at 900 miles. Dealer was happy enough to do it at 900. 1200 miles is not a hard rule.

I do not personally believe the break-in period is based on anything but tradition but as an enthusiast that changes cars often I respected the break-in restrictions out of respect for my car's future owners.

Make sure you enjoy it while it last ... Mutch talk in Germany right now to change speed limits to 120 KM / Hr ... If there is no change in Governement this upcoming election then all is fine ...

You can get your kicks on the track ...

BTW ... Public opinion on this is about 50/50 so let us hope there is no change.

OP ... mine was around 3 weeks after delivery ... new owners should also check the manual that after the 1,200 miles (2,000 KM) one should still be gentle for a spell ,,, see screen shot form the on line electronic manual below.

BTW I keep a copy of the ///M3 electronic manual on my iPad (very handy).
