Oil Change?

I got my oil changed in April of 2012 at about 88,000 miles....my car now had 92,850 miles and i still have not changed the oil. Car says i still have 9,000 miles to go before its req'd. I live in Ohio where its cold right now and maybe drive it once a week so it sits a lot so i can keep the miles down, anyway i called my stealer-ship they say 15,000 miles or a year whatever comes first. So i have about 3 more months, I'm just concerned about the oil being in there for so long and not being driven daily. Please give me your feedback on what I should do!

You should be fine. Wait until you hit around 95K miles. BMW recommends oil changes every 15K miles, but people on the forum usually change twice as often ( every 7500 miles.)
Btw, consider doing oil changes yourself. There is a DIY on it, it's pretty simple. For about 60 bucks, you get the satisfaction, not to mention the savings!
