Mine is at 15K and I only have less then 1k left on my counter, since I never got an oil change yet, this is fairly accurate
Interesting. Makes sense, in that we have about 8500 miles since the last change, and about 7000 "to go" on the counter. Total - 15500 miles, which is pretty consistent with BMW's recommended interval. Thanks for the info.
