BEWARE OF BMW DRIVERS!!!

Driving to work this morning, I looked over to my right and there was a woman in a brand new BMW doing 90kmh with her face up to the rear view mirror putting on eyeliner!

I looked away for a couple of seconds and when I looked back she was halfway over in my lane, still working on that makeup! It scared me so badly, I dropped my electric shaver, which knocked the cereal bowl out of my other hand.

Motor run in

I just got a 202 motor dropped in

The run in leaflet says to accelerate to 60-90km/h in low gear (2nd in auto) for 6-7 times a drive.

Ive got a 3 on tree. Does that mean to over rev in 1st gear to 60km/h???

Cheers
