7k is about right, according to the car's countdown computer. I'm hoping someone just got sloppy with the oil change. Clean it off and keep an eye on it. Good luck.

Just to state the obvious: the black circular object is the oil filter cap. Is it on tight (18 lbs-ft)? Maybe somebody got sloppy when removing the filter?

I test drove a couple of E91s (stick and auto) but their lack of torque underwhelmed me. BMW did a good job with their turbo 4 - smooth, powerful, and efficient. Plus, I never really warmed to the...

I also went from an A4 3.2 Avant (B7) to an F31 328XiT. Don't know what was available in Canada, but in the US we could only get the F30 3 Series (2014 and later) wagon with 2.0 Turbo, AWD, and 8...

Sport+ allows less stability control (allows a bit of oversteer) and won't automatically upshift when using paddles (allows bumping the rev limiter). It also ignores the "emergency" downshift button...

In Sport it automatically shifts at redline, so when you think you're manually shifting at redline it shifts twice. Use Sport+ then YOU do all the shifting. (Took me lots of trial and error to figure...

Old thread, but thank you Ken!
I remain remarkably satisfied with the OEM Sport+ settings, and use it (with manual paddle shifting) as soon as the oil temp needle moves off the peg. The shock...

My suspected lack of F31s with DHP was what led me to order my 2014. You might also consider a std suspension F31 and adding Bilsteins B6s.

Um, if you meant AUTOCROSS, you won't even exceed 130kph, never mind 130mph (and certainly not 155mph, which you won't even exceed on a road course). You probably mean rev limiter, not top speed...

Comfortably cruised at 120-130, briefly touched indicated 156 downhill, with companion taking the picture.
And yes, it does require full concentration.

Congrats! Did you steal my delivery dashboard pic? Mine also had 0.9 miles on the odo. :-) Delivered May 13, 2014, and still reveling in it.

Sorry, but you're in the wrong forum. If it's a 2012, that's an E91, I-6 gas. The Tourings for this body style are the F31, I-4 turbo gas or diesel, and arrived in N America in 2014.
