M break in is different from non-M. M is under 5500 RPM, no full throttle, no constant throttle operation (vary the throttle and gear, so no highway crusing wit hteh cruise control), not more than 105 MPH for first 1200 miles, then have serviced. The GRADUALLY increase RPM and speeds up to 3200 miles, with no sustained operation over 137 MPH during this period.

RTFM means Read The F (insert word of your choice, Funny, Flippen, Freaky, Fast, etc) Manual.
