On the track always! During normal driving, always! Yeah I am bad but I love it and so does my car. Think about the autobahn and how hard these cars are run. The old school method praises it here and there also.

Never. I normally shift at around 2800 and once a week, I will accelerate to 5k.

For me I'd say probably 2-3 times on a single day, every other day but only to 6700k. But I'm planning to get BMW PE and Intake with AA tune in february, so I'll probably end up doing it a lot more. Like some other people have already said, these cars are meant to be driven hard and fast! Just maintain them really well and they will love you.

I tend to redline about once every couple of weeks. But I do a few high rpm pulls a week.

sounds just like me. Every once in a while I will rev it up to 5.5-6 but never any higher. Car doesn't make power past 5.5k anyway lol

Reviving this a bit...

When it's nice out a few times a week; theres a really nice industrial area I drive through on my way home with 6 lanes & a bunch of stoplights. If I time it right I can hit every single red light
