You got lucky, every coupon I've ever seen from BMW for oil changes excludes Ms and Diesels specifically due to the high cost of oil.

I had a prelim done @ 5k as well, and paid ~$100 for it at the dealer, I could have gotten the kit from Tischer for cheaper and did it myself, but for the difference I didn't want to have to worry about fighting a battle in the future if something went wrong.

I don't plan on doing any other mid-interval changes I just wanted to get any initial wear items out of the oil before the first change.
