Brand new 525i!

My dad just picked up his saphire black 525i w/ premium and cold weather packages. I think it has a couple of other things but I don't remember right now. I'm pretty sure it has 17" rims. I thought those only came with the sports package though.

How many RPM's should he keep it under and for how many miles. (It's a 3-year lease, is this even worth it?). Any other new-car things he should do/worry about? It looks/feels great and we want to keep it that way

Congrats to your dad! I am gonna get mine in a month and a half.
The 17 inch rims are standard, and you should have your dad read the manual where it will cleary state what rpm I think no higher than 4K or 4.5K RPM and keep the car under 100 mph for the next 1,200 miles.
Read the manual for accurate information.

Kzang basically has the facts, but it is spelled out in the manual pretty well.
