Bottom line; don't get excited by labs data that has probably NO RELEVANCE or meaning in the real world. I fully trust BMW, Mercedes and Porsche expertise; they would never take such a risk on their reputation. I am totally confident that they have large statistical data to support that their engines will reach 150 000 miles.
Spend your nerves elsewhere.
I'm glad you trust other humans this much, I however do not. They are out to make a buck...nothing else.
change you damned oil more often its worth the safety margin.
is everyone really that lazy and cheap??
