To be clear, I am not trying to argue that BMW's oil change schedule is optimal. I simply agree with Sunny's point - there really isn't any compelling evidence to the contrary.

I also rotate my tires every 5,000 miles and I plan to swap out the water pump early as a preventative measure.

Better safe than sorry!
