stupid problem:

i changed my oil this weekend at some car wash that i always go to (i know, that's my first problem)

anyways, they used non synthetic on my 335

i'm guessing i can drive it just fine, even if i wide open throttle the car a few times.

i was told by a few friends that the car is reccomended to have synthetic if you drive it hard without changing the oil for @ 7K miles.

i "might" just go back to that shop and get them to put synthetic in.

can i keep the conventional oil in there for a month or so !?!?

Why would you go back to a shop which doesn't even know the proper oil to put in your car?

Go to a dealer, pay the $100, & have it done right!

Why would you go to "some car wash" to get oil changed on a BMW? How would they even have a filter for a car that the majority are still being worked on at the dealer under the pre-paid maintenance plan, and which is a low volume sales car in the USA anyway (as compared to say a Camry or Accord).

I don't get it.
