So what is the "expected" delivery mileage on these vehicles? What was the deivery mileage on yours Rage?

I knew someone who rejected one of the first Camaro SS cars from Shaganappi because it had 80km on it.

If I was spending the money $$$$$$! on one of these I would clearly set out my requirements for PPI test drives etc as I know this is a regular occurnce from Fords to Porsches at all dealerships. (IE Rage's Calgary BMW M3 Joyride)

Bitched like I did when it happened to my M3. Still would've taken the car, there's no more allocations out there.

38 at the train yard (I went to the yard with my sales guy)
40 after the drive to the dealer (I was passenger)
41 at delivery. 1km PDI road test.

Yea, you can easily get another allocation. This car is too rare, anyone refusing delivery will not get another one, that's a guarantee. The owner took the car.

As for break-in, break-in period is overrated. There was zero damage done to the car in the video. If anything, it was broken in properly. What's concerning is the disrespect by the techs, beating on a car that's not theirs. If they got permission to beat on it, that's a different story.

I tell my tech at Lone Star to drive it hard whenever I bring it in for service. These cars are meant to be driven. The M3 was a different story. It was driven hard cold, and without my permission. I didn't even know it was going to be at the dealership.

I have to agree with this- most manufacturers aren't going to leave it up to the average new car buyer to ensure that an engine is broken in properly.

This. I'm not sure why it's still printed in the manual. Take Porsche for example, they ask for 2000 miles of easy driving. Yet, when the car is off the production line, every car runs flat out on a rolling dyno, after which it's driven hard on a test track.

Absolutely has to be driven hard. Making the video was a poor choice, driving like that in a residential area is an illegal choice.

I must have missed that thread, or forgot, but Rage2 how did you catch the folk that took your other car for a joyride? Was it a brand new car, or just in for maintenance?

old thread. Beyond members knew that Rage got in an accident and his car was fully repainted and required some stupid BMW clips or w/e.

Some members saw his vehicle being driven recklessly all around deerfoot meadows area. He also had gps in his car that tracked the path. Rage got mad at BMW but nothing much came of it IIRC?

I thought it was that due to the tune it had a data logger and he saw them hit the rev limiter a few times.

Edit: found it.

Double edit:

- Needed a fog light harness
- Someone saw the car being driven
- ECU has GPS and data logger
- SMG Tranny threw code for too hard of a shift from hitting it near redline.
