Post 1200 Mile Service - this car is a beast!

Not that it wasn't a beast already, the 1200 mile service has really transformed this car into a mean machine. The car feels much lighter and easier to handle.

The power feels the same as before but the car is definitely quicker. I love it.

yes... it was nice driving the car after break-in!

I got spoiled when I picked up my car at the performance center and I got to use their M3s on the track.. pegging the needle to the redline. Driving the car below 5500 rpm after that experience was torture!

The 1200 mile service does not do anything to the car other than the car gets fresh fluids. The reason why you feel the car is a beast now, is because now you get to go past 5500 rpms to redline. The car has always had the potential to perform how it does now, straight off the factory line.

Hahaha- Yeah. I would say like this:

Before 1200 miles: it's like a dating a hot chick but she only let you make out.
After 1200 miles: now she is your gf and you're banging her hard everyday.

It's THAT MUCH better.

They made your car lighter!? where did you get the service done, sounds like everyone needs to go there for their 1200 mile service.

I've got to say that my clutch seems to be working better after I got to rev the car up. It's probably all in my head, but it really seems that way to me.
