Using premium synthetics this is probably where I'll settle in oil change wise. Will most likely be right around every six months for me @ 5K miles.

Oh and First oil change was at 250 miles... Just have to get that shitty full of metal oil outta the engine. Maybe just an old habit but I felt better doing it, and I got to know my car.

A BMW is Just a Car, it doesn't make you smart, handsome, cool, or wealthy. Get over it.

Own? Now it depends on if you're keeping it long. If not, like 3 years, 15k. UNLESS you think you're going to sell it privately and the buyer is going to want to see interval changes and proof thereof.

Own and keep forever? 1200-1500 break-in, every 7,500, taking the 15k for free. Also, he said absolutely no problem if you DIY, it's not rocket science changing the oil.

Sounds like pretty shitty advice really. What about take proper care of the machinery because it's the right thing to do? Treat it with respect, NOT because it's a BMW, but because it's a quality machine and SHOULD be taken care of...
