The break in periods from the manual say: First 1200 miles don't exceed 105 MPH, next 1800 miles don't exceed 135 MPH.

You are babying it still?

255/30/21 and 295/25/21. GPS speed 200 kmh = 204 kmh on speedo, so it's very accurate. At an indicated 335 kmn/h the engine was at 8,000 rpm. Still 400rpm to go.

Ok so you take 3.91 * 0.83 for 7th gear so a ratio of 3.2453. Divide 8000RPM by this and you get 2465 wheel rpm tire circumference is about 7 feet. So roughly 196MPH without tire expansion if you say 0.02% expansion per MPH, then it is roughly 4% more or about 204MPH. 335km/h is about 208mph, about a 2% difference just like 200 vs 204, not bad... You clearly made it over 200mph.

Amazing how quickly that fuel goes down

Here are mine from the Autobahn. 203mph and 206mph not very clear though. Wasn;t going to hold the camera at those speeds so had it taped to the dashboard and zoomed in on HUD

Great video, the M5 is very controlable at higher speeds especially at the autobahn. You easily could go 200-250 kph on the autobahn for a long period
