I would leave after taking a picture and go to another dealership. If this were a BMW dealership, I would let BMW NA know. This is unacceptable!

5k mile oil change intervals are not too soon. The N54 is a high revving, high temp, turbo-charged engine. And if you plan to "enjoy" your car, changing the oil every 5k miles is just right!
