I dont recall BMW not allowing to use driving programs 5 and 6 during break in. Anyone can confirm? I used both those programs during run in but never exceeded past 5500rpm. Weird.

Yup ... I did exactly that. I wonder what the "drive it like you stole it crew" thinks about the rationale. Makes perfect sense to me.

nice write-up. bmw wouldn't go through all the hassle if the break-in period wasn't legit. i don't see any good reason for not following it. better safe than sorry later.
