It should be fine. I was slightly over when i brought mine in. They just change the fluids mostly so I don't think a few miles will hurt.

I was 200 miles (1,400); no biggie, especially on the first one, which is premature anyway. Was driving the car home, so didn't have a choice.

Just by chance mine was at 1204 miles. They'd never seen anyone hit it so close.

anyone else have experience going over? I have to go on a trip tomorrow, and it's going to be about 350km(200miles ish) over the 2000km(1200mile) point

edit: i've read the other 3 threads I found over the next few pages, seems like the consent is that it's okay to go over abit, I guess I should call my dealer to inform them anyways..
