Also, the manual says not to exceed 5,500rpm for the first 1,200 miles whereas for the 50i limit is 4,500rpm. I thought ///M engines had strict babying rules when new, but it seems to be just the opposite. Any thoughts?
I too would like the answer to this. At the dealer they said not to go over 4000 RPM or 100MPH...
