Basically dont thrash a cold engine - drive sensibly until its warmed up.

 

FWIW my E91 330D BMW took about 8 miles for the temp gauge to reach normal from cold. A great car but not for short distances.

 

 

I've seen a couple of young lads around with their not very old Golfs and Leons - nice paint jobs and body kits - but the engines have been trashed - trails of blue smoke

Point of order :laugh:  - there were no V6 M3s - they were all straight (in-line) 6 cylinder engines except the E30 which was a 4 cylinder and the E90 which was a V8   https://en.wikipedia...i/BMW_M3#Engine

My Mistake - it is a V8.. sorry!

The V8 makes a lovely sound - I had the chance to drive one once. If you come from a long history torquey turbo engines (like me) I found it takes a while to get use to the naturally aspirated V8 - it needs to really rev to appreciate the engine. I had to stop myself changing up a gear at 6000rpm
