Question about Break-In Period..new member here

Im picking up my E90 tomorrow, and am traveling upstate the following day (230 mile trip). My question is, is it okay to drive the car at a steady speed (65-75mph), for almost 3 hours?

I am just so excited to get the car, im dying to drive it on a long journey to get the mileage up. But might resort (still good), to driving with my father in his C63 tomorrow.

THanks M3post,

Joe

As long as you dont pass 5500 on your rpm you should be fine.

What about varying RPM's every once in a while, maybe up to 6500 once a dayish?
