When did you take your car in for the first service?

My car says I need service in 700 miles, but I already have 700 on there which equates to 1400 miles. Just wanted to see what you guys did for your first service ... did you take it in at 1200 or when the car told you to?

I have a DCT btw.

You need to add an "other" choice on this vote. I brought my car in to check on something at around 900 miles and the dealer went ahead and did the initial 1200 mile break in service as it was so close to the 1200 mile mark.

Oh damn ... can I edit a poll? It didn't seem like it.

Mine said I needed service somewhere around 700 miles too. I waited until 1149 and brought it in then, right before bimmerfest. Then I got it tuned and the rest has been history

Mine doesn't say it needs service yet. I have 700+ on the clock and the indicator says I have 700 miles left to go which adds up to 1400.

Ah I see ... maybe I should do that also. Mine is doing exactly the same thing. Oh and your sig pic is sick. Is that what IB looks like all the time or is more purplish as opposed to dark blue?
