2013 335i break in period?
 
What are people doing for the break in period? Following the book, or driving the hell out of it?

dont' have the car yet, but I usually keep it under 3500 rpms for 1K miles and then increase a few times from there a week. After 2500K miles it should be ready to be driven any way you want.

Hitting the Dolomites, but making sure it stays under 4500 rpms :)

As soon as you pick up the car from the dealer. Right out of the show room, you should put one foot on the brake and gas the rpm up to red line and launch it out of the parking lot. Continue doing this until you get to 1200 miles and then you can drive normal after that. Dont forget, during the first 200 miles, jam on your brakes as hard as you can everytime you stop.

keeping to the recommended break-in limits. I love my car way too much to rip it apart even before the new car smell has gone.
