He was offering an insight of value. The fact that others here don't agree with Sunny doesn't make his opinion any less valuable.

And, in this case, he has a good point. There is ZERO evidence that BMW's suggested 15,000 mile oil change schedule interferes with engine durability. In fact, there is good evidence to the contrary. In most areas of the country, 3-series are leased more often than purchased. Leased vehicles typically don't get more than the standard factory schedule. Accordingly, the 3-series fleet in America is largely on the 15,000 mile schedule. yet, according to Consumer Reports, the 3-series has had excellent engine reliability.

I'll continue to change my oil every 7,500 miles - its good insurance. But, I concede Sunny's point.
