M5 break in peroid

Just curious what other members have been told for the break in peroid ? I was told by the dealer do not go above 5000 rpm and service at 1200 miles. I have also heard service at 1500 miles. Is this consistent with everybody else's M5's.

1200 miles according to the downloaded manual

A good read on break-in period for a Porsche that will also apply to BMWs.

Read reply # 151.

A good read on gasoline and additives.

http://www.vettenet.org/octane.html

How I do the The Insiders trick on additives.

5 full tanks of Chevron, 5 full tanks Shell, Then I set my trip counter to 0 and fill up at Costco for 5,000 miles. Then repeat.
