You can't really drive any new BMW flat out for the first 2,000km (about 1,200 miles). That's one of the reasons I'm not too keen on ED. You are limited to 100mph during that break-in period. 100mph sounds like a lot, but on the autobahn you will be passed like you are stopped at a red light. So unless you're planning a lot of driving over there, I personally don't see the value, but obviously many people get value or the program wouldn't exist.
