1200 mile service question

I know there have been tons of threads on this topic, but I did a and didn't see any that pertain to this:

I got a call from my BMW dealer today telling my they received a teleservices message from my car indicating it is ready for the 1200 mile service, but I only have 700 miles, and the car is telling me I have 600 more miles to go. I'm wondering if the teleservices message was based on time rather than mileage (I have had the car for exactly 4 weeks now). Should I have the service done now, or wait until I reach 1200-1300 miles?

The service cocnsist of:
standard service
oil service
intake silencer (what the heck is that?)
service run-in check
manual transmission drive unit
micro filter (for the A/C?)

By the way, the parts department told me the warehouse has plenty of the M3 oil filters, so the backorder problem shouldn't be an issue now.
