Lets face it, the $100 they charge you to do it is small bickies compared to the investment in the car. Why scimp?

Exactly my Point

Dr Stig knows

There is a reason why it is in the manual, you see when they build the engine (and what a fine piece of machinery it is) anything in there of a hard type foreign material with those close clearances around the pistons yes even it is in micro spec form will do damage to this fine piece of machinery. So listen to us when we say change the oil get those mirror fine particles out when they flush out the break in oil. You be better off in the long run. I'm sure you would not listen to a sales man now would you?

Driving mt 2012 /// M3 LMB & Black Leather Interior Fully Loaded
I drove a Z4 35i across the USA in 2010 & loved it.
Somehow I just had to get back into the /// M3 and so I did.
