Road trip in new 528

Next sunday im heading to Florida with a couple of friends in my new 528. I have yet to take delivery (should be on tues or wed). I was just wondering what would be wise to look at in particular (other than obvious tire pressure, oil, fluids, ect...) before going on a long trip like that. this car was well maintained and drives great now with 112k miles. no noticable problems however the current owner is taking it to the dealership to have an ABS light looked at which he will take care of if it turns into a problem. It just got new rotors and pads all around in august and it has not been a daily driver since then so im sure its just a sensor or something small like that. nothing serious. that is the only known "problem". tires have about 500 miles on them they were new in aug. as well. tranny shifts great. no noises coming from engine, exhaust, tranny, suspension... I just dont want to break down in bumfuck due to something that could have been easily prevented. Thanks guys!

If it's what you describe, you should not have any trouble going to Fla and back.
