Does this sound like a VERY long interval, or not unheard of?
Those are kms. not miles being Estonia?

Looks like the standard BMW recommended oil changes, although the 2nd. one was quite late.

The Inspection I at 59K kms. was about 9K kms. late too.

Better to look for one where the original owner has gone with shorter oil change intervals.

I don't think being a diesel makes much difference.
Oils have been developed to meet the high mileage demands of diesel fleet operators more so than they have been for individual owners of gasoline vehicles.
