What's the typical break in period for the engine? I've read the first 1000 miles are the most important. As soon as that 1000 miles hit, my friend and I went for a drive, and I got a bit aggressive with the sport mode and "manual" gears. I've also heard a lot of people say that it's bad for BMW engines, especially brand new engines, to idle in the morning to "warm up." I haven't seen that in the manual yet, but any advice on whether good or bad to let the engine warm up in the morning, especially when it's 32F or below?
