How did you guys break-in your new M3

About to get my new E92 in couple weeks. I have heard different ways about braking in a new car. What are some of the tips/suggestions that y'all think I should be aware of. Thanks

id follow the break in by the book until after your 1200 mile service, then build up to redline for the next 20 miles or so and after that enjoy these cars are meant to be ran hard

I just followed the break-in procedure. Did the 1200 service and I let her rip.
