I think I earned an ///M stripe I actually had the service done at 1107 but still remained diligent (for what I don't know) until I crossed the 1200 mile mark. Then I checked my MDrive settings - dialed all settings to sport/power - shift lights on, pressed the M button (S5 for the first run)... hit it, going through the gears watching those shift lights illuminate - and let off til next time............
