ED = European Delivery.

BMW recommends you don't exceed 100mph in the first 1,200 miles. It's a recommendation but I doubt you will do damage at 120mph. Now, if you constantly redline it, that would be a different story.

Edit: Another reason to limit speeds is that your tires are new and need to break in just like the engine. This is true every time you buy new tires. They have much less grip when they're brand new.
