Unfortunately on the MY11 it doesn't work that way. It takes Sport+ to change the xDrive balance and the 60/40 isn't really enough difference to do the trick. Although I did get a MY16 535 loaner...

You do not set a speed limiter in iDrive, you set a speed reminder chime that goes off (chimes) when the set speed is reached. :)

Otherwise, the F10s are limited to 135mph for standard models, and...

Totally agree with all above but would add that it would be best to attach a "Battery Tender" before leaving on the trip. That way you'll be guaranteed to start when you return.
