For the first 300 miles, do not perform any agressive launches, gear changes, etc. with a new clutch. Apparently a new clutch has a very slightly 'conical' shape to it that has to conform to the pressure plate. You do NOT want to disturb this 'mating' period in a vehicle such as the E39 M5 with a dicey clutch as standard.
Brakes are about the same in that you do not want to attempt any extremely heavy applications, unless you are forced to of course! About 100-200 miles should get the brake pads 'mated' to the rotors.
