Nice.

I think I'll try Mobil 1 ATF, since I'm using their motor oil. My M6 feels kinda rough due to the colder temps. I might do that at 5,000 miles w/ my oil change. 1,300 miles right now.

Yes, I haven't changed the oil yet, but I did put on a new filter and topped off the oil about 100 miles ago. So far, I notice no oil consumption during this break-in period.

Royal Purple or Amsoil is the best way to go!

What I usually do with a new car is drop it at 1000 miles and cut open the filter to make sure nuthin negative is happening inside.
