I have had both BMW and VW dealers tell me that. Both manufacturers state the break in requirements in their manual.

Remember, the dealer wants you to buy another car sooner rather than later....

Most car salesmen don't read manuals, and want to give you quick "no-worry" answers.

The lies just continue....
..and in the future the same salesperson that told you there is no break in period, will not bat an eyelash selling your traded-in Z4 that was broken in incorrectly to some unsuspecting buyer, telling them that the previous owner (you), who he knew, definitely followed ALL the proper maintenence schedules and break in period correctly.

Do most car salesman even know how to read, period?
