I just spoke to my buddy Alex again about this and he said that driving the car is driving the car. It doesn't matter if you travel 15 miles or 1500 miles. The most important thing is to not redline the engine. The reality is that you are buying a car that is meant to be driven... The length of time it will take to ship the car vs the length of time it would take to drive it back is wayyyyy longer! BMW would not offer European delivery or performance center delivery if it was not totally fine to drive the car for long distances during break in. I have several friends from bmw cca that have done euro delivery of M cars, driving long distances through europe when the car is brand new, and have had zero problems with their cars.
