You obviously have a low opinion of BMW and their "free" maintenance program. I share your incredulous attitude and opt to do all my own maintenance services at intervals I think are reasonable.
I do think BMW NA's oil recommendations are sound and reasonable and, if still under factory warranty, prudent to follow.
