Any Special "Running In" Needed for my 535D?
Hi folks - to all you diesel owners out there...I am supposed to get my new 535D tomorrow (finally) & as this will be the first time I have ever owned a diesel (my last 3 beemers were 4.4 V8), I was wondering if there was any specific thing/s I needed to do / be aware of wrt running the diesel in.
I did ask the salesman this same question & he told me that for the first 2,000 kms I just need to run-in the sports auto transmission to bed it in & avoid really long road trips where I just drive at 110 km/h for 4+ hours at a time (easy to do on OZ roads); in other words use a variety of speeds (incl. shorter road trips is OK) so that I also get to use the gearbox a fair bit.
Otherwise nothing special needed to run-in the diesel components.
Does any diesel owner out there have anything to add to this - really appreciate any feedback.
