Oil Change

Ok. I am sure this topic has been beaten like a rented mule but... Now having noted that there is no transmission oil change interval (correct?) I am more and more skeptical of the factory engine oil interval. Therefore, I was thinking about doing an initial change at 5k.

Let's hear it- Good idea or bad idea? And since I would be following the factory fill and preceding a later free service provided by the dealer, which oil is going to be most compatible with whatever the dealer is going to use?

And while I am asking stupid questions, where is the battery buried on this thing? Yes, I read the manual. And yes, it appears to be at the passenger firewall, but I did not dig in to see. If this were a 335i, would the battery be in the trunk?

Ok- that is it for stupid question for the time being.
