My new 7 finally

Tomorrow I pick up my new 7 and right away from the showroom I will drive down to the wheels shop to switch to the 19inch Hamann rims(anniversary silver line). I will post photos soon. It has been a long one month wait. Question for you'll,

Do I need to run it in?
Since the front and rear tyres are different in size, how many miles do I use them before switching to new ones?
Any do's or dont's?

This is my first BMW and I hope I love it, I hope it doesn't give me any problems.

Ok. I pick it up tomorrow and drive across the border to Malaysia next week which is a good 220 miles from my home and drive back over the weekend which is another good 220 miles. I'll take it easy on the throttle.
