I think it is a good idea to change the oil early in the cars life. No matter how often you change the oil, the car will continue breaking in for at least the first 7000 miles (10,000km). Changing the oil means there will be a lower proportion of metal particles in the oil during the break in process. Often people use the figure of 1,000 or 1,500 miles (or about 2000km) for the first oil change. Thats what I did with my car. Incidently, BMW stipulate an oil change at 2000km for the M3.
