Ok . Thought if its not required now I can do it after 3000 miles , I guess the inspection gonna cost me around $700 .. so wanted to know if its really required.

I think after 3000 miles you will know if the BMW is a safe and reliable car. Hold off on that$700.00 inspection. I think its a bit high. And remember, its the mechanics job to find things that are "wrong." A state inspection for safety items should suffice for now.
