Same thing happened to me. An electronic issue with the stereo put it back at the dealer at 500 and something miles. They had to keep the car a couple of days waiting for a part to come in. I live 3 hours drive from them (or any other dealer) so, under those circumstances, it made sense to keep me from basically driving home and turning around and driving back a few days later. They asked me if it would be ok for them to do it, I said yes, but they had to get special permission from BMWNA. I still followed break-in procedure to 1200 miles. I then changed the oil and filter myself at around 6k. Now have 13k, with several track days, and have not burned a drop of oil.
