Great write-up!

I'm still puzzled why your '05 just had the first oil change. The dealer will change your oil annually (included in the free maint) if you do not put many miles on the car. (For example, my '05 M3 has only 8,000 miles on it and has had the oil changed three times by the dealer for free, although the first of those was an extra M break-in change.)
