Can't speak to diesels -- they may be different in terms of service intervals for oil service. I would hope they are, as a diesel running over 25K miles between changes is too long IMHO. You may have a car that was maintained personally for oil changes, and so not documented, or one that just didn't get the service. We do have some folks who run the X3 diesel down in Oz, South Africa, UK, and South America who would be able to give you a good answer. For my '06 X3 gasser the service intervals were 15K, 30K, 45, and 60K etc. As X3Brian mentions most here also change oil between those intervals, around 7500 or so.
