The prior owner just changed the brake pads, oil, and the tires. So it seems like I can ride this for 3000 miles without worrying about the other maintenance!...
Congrats!

The BMW recommended oil change interval is handled by the Condition Based System - usually around 15K miles. Seems to work for many people; however many people change at 7500 miles. There is really no need (based upon oil analysis reports) to change before then. Be sure to use BMW approved LL-01 oil - the Castrol the dealers sell is about as cheap as anything.
