Mein Auto: '13 X5M, 650xi
No 1,200 break-in oil change?

I believe it is required for the M5, but I can't find it in the X5M manual. The dealer was also talking about getting the full power mode turned on after the 1,200 mile oil change (again an M5 thing?). Also, the manual says not to exceed 5,500rpm for the first 1,200 miles whereas for the 50i limit is 4,500rpm. I thought ///M engines had strict babying rules when new, but it seems to be just the opposite. Any thoughts?
