MARCH 13, 2023

If you are concerned about maintaining your 0km made to accelerate in the best way, follow these tips from BMW. You were able to fulfill the dream of many people and bought a 0 km sports car. It is assumed (I want to believe) that you have it to use it properly, that is to say, to take it to track days and enjoy its goodness where you can accelerate it. But like any toy, besides having fun with it, you have to know how to take care of it. How to take care of a new sports car? Unlike the vehicles of yesteryear, which required a long period of "softening", modern vehicles are more advanced and their parts settle in less time. However, this settling-in period still exists, and it is extremely important to respect it when talking about high-demanding and high-performance vehicles. To help in this matter, the engineering division of BMW M released a series of tips to protect the engine in its first accelerations, in order to extend the life of the vehicle. The good thing is that this knowledge is not only applicable to BMW sports cars, but to all those sold in the market. We review them: Care in the first 1,000 kilometers Do not exceed 5,000 rpm or 170 km/h (105 mph). Avoid making heavy demands on the engine Do not make sudden downshifts or use Launch Control to accelerate from zero. Between 1,000 and 2,000 kilometers. Do not exceed 6,000 rpm or 210 km/h (130 mph). Avoid full throttle in 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear. After 2,000 kilometers Have it serviced for the first time Then, drive it as you like For my part, I recommend that, if you have the privilege of owning a sports car or at least a car that is fun to drive, use its capabilities on a racetrack. Signing up for a track day is by far the most fun and safest way (for you and others) to enjoy a good car. Fuente: Autocosmos
