The 1250 service mark

What all is done when the M car is taken in at 1200 miles?

Would anyone here buy a 2013 M5 with 1285 miles that has not had this service yet?

They change the engine oil and the differential oil.

Nothing else. The car also should unlock launch control once the computer confirms the service is completed.

85 miles over?!?!?!?

Absolutely not...maybe it it was 80 or less, but anything over 82, 83 is WAY too risky.

Importantly, though, is the question of HOW those 1285 miles were driven..babied? or dealer demo?

The first 1,000mi was the buyer, and the remaining test drives and techs....the best i could gather. The car is for sale at a Porsche dealer as a favor for a client.

And I thought I was being too picky!!
