Let me get this straight. You are upset with the dealer/BMW because they want to give you an oil change at no charge? Surely you understand that changing the oil once per year is the absolute minimum. Short trip driving is the absolute most severe condition to which you can subject your car. Moisture accumulates in the oil that does not get evaporated by the heat of a nice long drive. If you took your car on a long trip now you might even see your oil level drop fairly quickly as a good percentage of your oil is now water. I understand that you are leasing the car, but have a care for the poor sod that buys your car when you are done with it, especially if it costs you nothing!
