The wait is finally over..1200miles inside the garage..



I pulled into the garage last night and coincidently, 1200 miles shown on the dash board. Since it is Sunday, I decided to take my wife out for a nice breakfast and a quick drive. The shot was before we left for a nice drive. Still waiting to take the car in this coming week for 1200 miles service so I can fully explore the higher RPM...

The best way to end the 1200 miles break-in period...

Cheers

Congrats... I am halfway there myself already with about 600miles on the dash after pickup last Fri and my leisurely drive back home to Maryland! I have to go to VA and back the week after next so that should complete my break in period nicely.

Let us know if it was hard to get an appt for the service or not and what they did. Enjoy!

I live 1 1/2 miles from my work, and I only work 3 days a week. I find every excuse in the world to drive this car.

No Excuses GUYS...go out and drive the M..
I work from home..sometime too..
Instead of picking up babies in the X5, I took the M.
Instead of daily drive with the E46, I use the M.

Basically, I treat the M as the only car for now...
