What do you mean? You're gonna do an oil change...
Anyways, I have a long way to go. About 1000 miles to go.

I just can't wait. First it was the wait for the delivery and now, the wait to drive hard... :D

actually u should think twice about flooring it right at 1200... it's not like 1200 is a magical number that determines when u can and can't floor it. if u read the little stick on the top of left of ur windshield, u'll notice it says you can GRADUALLY increase the revs... until 3100. so basically don't floor it until 3100 miles. just some advice, but it's up to you :)

I was told that you shouldn't baby your M for those first 3K miles or so. Yeah you should be cool, (like under 5500 rpm) for the first 1200 miles, but I took it up to like 6200 from 1200-3000 miles because the DME will program its fuel curve based on how it learns from your driving. So if you baby it all the time, It might not be as responsive as someone who got into it every now and then:dunno: I have 3K miles on my car and ripped into her a few times just cause I couldn't wait, but never taken her to readline yet to this day, nor missed any shifts.:thumbup: But enjoy, and drive it like you mean it....thats why you spent the extra $$

Just want to double check, the 1200 mile service does NOT include an engine oil change. Correct? This is what's in my service manual and is what my service advisor said. If so, should I pay for an early oil change? Or should I wait til... when? 5000?

When I took my car in to get my tire fixed, that question came up. The tech said that for the 2003 models, they are including an oil change with the 1200 mile service.

Now, I did not talk to the service manager about this, I'm actually trying to reach him on the phone.... I'll find out!! Cuz i definitely want an oil change with my 1200 mile service.
