I was planning on it when the CBS indicated to do so. In the meantime I've been busy and have better things to do rather than waste a whole day getting the oil changed prior to the CBS indicated requirement. As my Owner's Manual says:

"Sensors and special algorithms take the different driving conditions of your BMW into account. CBS uses this to determine the current and future service requirements." Engine oil is specifically indicated under the CBS "system."

Nevertheless, I gave in and have an appointment for next Wednesday with an agreement that my car will get in-and-out quickly. I expect free coffee and jelly donuts or else.
