If a recent report from German Auto Motor und Sport is to be believed, BMW will showcase another large luxury concept car at the upcoming Beijing Car Show starting April 20th.

After last year’s Gran Lusso concept which previewed a possible large coupe like the possible revival of the 8-series, AMS has allegedly learned that BMW is about to unveil a 9-series concept car shortly. This concept car is also said to preview a new generation of BMW’s interior design to debut in the all-new 2016 BMW 7-series (internally dubbed G11).

We got a hold of the operating manual of the F80 M3 and found some interesting tidbits we would like to share.

Break-In Period
As with any other current or late M model, break-in period is 2,000 km or 1,200 miles. During that time, maximum engine speed should not exceed 5,500 RPM, maximum speed is 170 kph (105 mph).

Between 2,000 and 5,000 km (1240 and 3100 miles), engine RPM can be slowly increased but speed should not exceed 220 kph (137 mph) for a longer period of time.

Recommended Oil

Catch our coverage from the 2014 Techno Classica Essen.

There is a reason why I LOVE attending the Techno Classic in Essen… it’s all the cool classic cars! Yup, the quality of the cars on display here and that fact that all the major German car makers are here – at the factory level, makes this show a MUST SEE event each year. It’s the worlds largest classic car show(so says Siha, the organizers) held in Europe. I believe it. I always have such a great time here.

It’s a wonderful car show. You can find anything car related here: cars, car parts, tools, artwork, cars for sale, model cars and toys for big boys and small one too! And its always nice to … CONTINUED
