I just left my baby at BMW dealer for 1200 mile service. I'd mention about getting oil change at 1200 on 03 M3 and they didn't know what i was talking about ....so i showed them a BMWNA letter, they made copy of the letter and agreed on the 1200 oil change.... I can't wait to spank my baby later....

Yes, the 2003 M3s come with oil changes for the 1200 mile service.... they shoudl know that!!

and I wouldn't WOT (or press the sport button) your M3 until at least 1500 miles... I would say wait till 2000-3000 miles if you can. Cuz once you do, you can't stop doing it!! :lmao:

The 2003 M3 model 1200 service should come with oil change. If they are a good BMW dealer, then they should know that. I just had 1200 miles service on mine too, and of course, they changed the oil. Make sure you look at the invoice to see if they put 10-60W oil (M3 specific).

I'm on 1400 miles, and still haven't passed 4000 rpm...:D

I just had my 1200 mile service on 1/4/02. They did my oil change too, so I guess my dealer (much props to Shelly BMW) is up to par. I can't lie to you fellas, after I hit about 1250 miles (on the way home), I opened her up.....all the way to 7500 rpm in sport mode. Oh my, I feel a bit "excited" as I type this, but the M3 rocks. I will try to limit my WOT runs to only once every few days, but it's addictive to say the least.

multiple pics of my M3: go to briefcase, then to 2003M3 pics and other pics http//:yahoo.profiles.com/seductive_bmw330ci

On the contrary, I sure did!!!! But I did intend to keep it to under 7000 RPM until 3000 miles, but that i failed :sad: Cuz when you're opening her up, you can't help but hit 7500rpm unless your eyes are constantly on the dash! I have about 2800 miles on my car now and i'm not opening her up that often.. just maybe 3 times a week haha. Plus, i am seeing my MPG go down to 17.8 :cry:

Here is proof I waited till 1500 miles:
