When I get my car I will only max out around 6500 at 1200. At 2k miles I will do 7500, and 3k I will only then stomp the pedal to 8300.

My friend has an 2005 E46 M3 where he redlined it at 1200miles and it's running just fine still.

i normally wouldnt recommend rape, but raping that M3 on the way home is the only sincere non-bullshit answer i can give u. sorry.

umm make sure u check the car for dents/scratches, make sure u notice how many miles they been having fun for, etc.

good luck

Fifth - Did you tell them about the M-DCT issue so that they wouldn't change the fluid or did they know?
