And then you say you change your oil "every 7,500 miles", why, you like crawling around under engines?
(PS Always a fun thread when we get talking about oil change intervals, eh?)
While I have no issue with the 15,000 mile oil change interval, the E90 has been around since 2006 means late 2005 on the road which is 7 years so certainly there are cars with 150,000 miles and I'd guess the average mileage for a one owner car is closer to 80,000 miles.
