Says who? Use an LL-01 oil and live happily ever after. Don't insist others need to waste their time and money because you are an over-maintainer.

I just changed the oil in my 330i for the 7th time at 121,000 miles and the inside is clean and deposit free. Runs as new.
Agree with never going under the car with just a jack - not wise and not worth your life. As for oil changes, there will always be a debate as to when to change it and whether or not the eom recommendation is correct. Your driving conditions should be the first consideration in your decision. If you are in a hot climate and only do stop and go driving and put on more hours than miles,it's not the same as a car that gets driven in moderate climates with all highway miles.
