This way 90% of people simply do 2 oil changes over the life of the 4 yr warranty and BMW laughs all the way to the bank.
That's interesting, I was reading the warranty book and it seemed like if it's not displaced through toe OBC, they do not cover it. To the point that the warranty booklet also included additional oil changes under the 'items not covered under maintenance'.

I hope i'm wrong, I was reading it late last night so will read it again to confirm.
