Mein Auto: 2013 535i
New 535i "should'a, could'a"

I'm now to the forum and new to the BMW world.

I'll soon be taking delivery on a new 535i, black/black.

I'm sure there are folks out there that look back a say "when I bought this car I wish I had ..."

Just wondering what I should consider doing after getting the car.
Should I "break the car in" and not exceed a certain RPM or speed?

Should I change the oil after the first 1000 miles?

Should I buy an extended warranty? Tire warranty?

Should I buy new floor mats?
you get the idea.

What do you wish you had done.

Thanks

You should've posted in the F10 forum.

Should I "break the car in" and not exceed a certain RPM or speed? Do whatever

Should I change the oil after the first 1000 miles? Don't bother till around 5k

Should I buy an extended warranty? Tire warranty? You have a few years to decide on an extended warranty. Don't bother with the tire warranty

Should I buy new floor mats? only if you want them
