I wrote a very detailed letter BMW NA and to my surprise I got a call last week that they are replacing the engine and covering the $27,000 bill. Can't wait to get my baby back. For break in what do you guys suggest I do and not do?? I am going to likely garage this car and will be the first car of my collection for when I get older. So I want to break this engine in perfectly.

Sincerely,
Cesar Garcia

You were having engine issues? Had a dealer already documented engine failure?

Once you get the car back don't rev passed 5500rpm for the first 2000kms. I would then suggest an oil change as per BMW break-in requirements.
