before and after 1200 mile service

Can someone explain the difference for a 6mt. I had a m6 previously, and with that car, they didnt engage the 500 horsepower until that service, which was super lame. To my understanding, the horsepower is the same.. Any other notible changes that I can look forward to?

I don't think anything besides the car breaking in (smoother) and the gearbox gets less notchy. Oh and you can start revving higher.

at 1250 miles the Launch Control becomes active only after driving for at least 5 miles.
