If you intend to keep it past the warranty I would definitely change the oil at least once between the 15K BMW schedule. When I had my E90 I did mine at 5k and 10K then let the dealer do the 15K. I only used BMW oil and filters and kept it to myself.

I'll do the same on my X3 when I get it.

My daughter has the E90 now, has it serviced on their schedule, and she occasionally gets the infamous N52 lifter tick, which I never got.
