How do you drive for the first few miles now that the temperature drops a bit (at least in the northern part of our North American Continent) ... also in some other parts of the world of course.

I stay below 3,000 RPM (driving and shifting) with the computer oil level display readout up and then only after some 10 miles ... approx. 16 KM once the level is up at half mark and giving me the okay do I exceed 3,000 RPM.

Do you treat your M3 the same? What do you do? Mine is a MT.

Doesn't the manual just say not to over rev while cold?

Just checking up on you fellows making sure you treat your babe nice and gentle for the first few miles
