First of all congrats on your new beast cherrsagai !!! If can send us pictures latter on. We had a discussion a couple days ago on the board about breaking in the engine and from what I have read and concluded almost everyone agreed that you must follow BMW manual on how to break in you new engine. Various reasons were mentioned but I suppose main one BMW guys know better then anyone else therefore better simply to follow manual. Take care.


This is what Gustav mentioned what is in manual although I have not read it myself yet.


Break in procedure:

The rules to run in a brand new BMW M5 is the following:

  • <2000 km: not over 5500 rpm or over 170 km/h. No kick-down or engage the gas pedal fully.
  • Between 2000 and 5000 km: Gradually increase the revolutions and the speed, but not over 220 km/h. Do this only briefly, for example during overtaking. Do not use the modes D5, S5 and S6. Do not use Launch Control.
