Everyone know that when a engine (oil temp) is cold we should not take
it to high revs as the oil is still thick and doesn't do it job right.
My question to anyone o knows more about the subject is, what is
considered high revs?
As a rule of thumb I try to avoid reaching 50% of the redline marked
My E36 316i redlines @6000 rpm, so I don't exceed 3000 rpm when cold,
especialy in the lower gears.
The E46 M3 has a led system in the rev counter that indicates the
current redline limit for the current engine temp, and the red line is
behond the 50% range when cold.
Any comments on this?
