Don't worry about it. Let'em do the service, drive and enjoy the car. While some believe that more break-in miles are needed, 500 miles is plenty for the initial fluids to capture metal particles that could be present following assembly. It is not necessarily a one-step process. In fact, one could suggest that the initial lube change should be done at an earlier mileage than 1200, but I guess BMW chooses to simplify the entire process under one mileage guideline.
