29 MILES on the Odometer

2013 335i 6-spd Manual

RPi Scoops
aFe Drop-in Filter
AR Catless 3-in Downpipe
Vanguard V2 CBE with custom X-pipe
JB4 Stage 2

Anyone else done this much stuff to their cars with less mileage than me? I've been driving it hard since the first day I left the dealer, don't really believe in the break-in process considering I've done this to the last 4 brand new cars I've owned with ZERO engine mechanical/electrical issues. I'll be changing the oil every 5k miles with BMW Synthetic oil as well. Love the car so far..we'll see how well the BMW product holds up.

I didn't mod mine that quickly but I agree about the BS break-in procedures. Beat the SNOT out of the car to force the rings to make tighter seals against the cylinder walls and you'll have a higher compression testing car down the road.

That being said, be gentle on the clutch, just give it the beans when you're fully in gear.

My 335 eats very little oil. It went 13,000 miles with no measurable change in engine oil level.

change your oil and filter at 2500 miles, then again at 7500 miles to catch all the break-in metal, and get a magnetic drain plug (does the N55 have steel liners like the N54?)

I was actually planning on changing my oil after 1200 miles and I already have a magnetic drain plug

I'm definitely not launching the car or anything, only going WOT when there's an open road and the gear is completely engaged. Oil consumption hopefully shouldn't be an issue since my oil change intervals are so short. hopefully.

I changed my oil at 100 miles, 1000 and then every 5,000 after that.

The most amount of bearing/wall material will get into the oil in the first 100 miles if you're breaking it in hard.
