Break-in period...1000, 3000...miles? (archive)

What is the concensus here as to the break-in period for the car? Some say 1000 miles, others say 3000 miles and how about not taking the car over a certain RPM? Top speed during this period? Should I add Dinan now or wait until the car is broken in?

Just want to keep my car ahem...excuse me, "ultimate driving machine" in ultimate condition.

I find myself driving late at night accidentally missing freeway intersections (ok, maybe subconciously on purpose!) sound familar? My wife is a BMW 540i widow. I would take her along for the ride, but someone has to watch out for the kid.

Thanks in advance,
