If you are driving 90 miles, you should NOT do it non-stop. It is EXTREMELY important to stop every 10-15 miles, get out of the car, rand un around it 3 times, yelling "WOO HOO!" If you are under 50 years old and under 250 pounds, doing cartwheels is also appropriate.

BTW BMW has always recommended varying the speed / RPM's during break-in. If you use cruise control on the drive home, you may want to vary the speed. This may not be any more helpful than the cartwheels, though.

PS: bed the brakes, to extend the life of the pads and rotors. If you do not know how, do a Google search.
