Anything more frequent that, imho, is just an excuse to work on the car because "their daddy did it that way" or whatever "feel good" excuse they come up with.
way to generalize there buddy.
Did you miss that thread when a E90 owner took his oil for professional analysis? guess what the result was.
To each on your own. Honestly, I think 15,000 is fine, but for safe side sake, Im going to get my first oil changed @ 5000miles. First oil is where all the dirty debris are left over. After that, I'll follow BMW's procedure.
