+1 ... was surprised by the longer time frame; my '07 530xi was based on miles (count-down started at 15K miles) or time - "annually" e.g. once ever year regardless of miles. Since I'm a low mileage driver (10K/yr) I'll still have my dealer perform an oil service annually at the very least. It they want to charge me (their advertised specials are $79) no biggie they know I'll take it out in trade by eating their danish and drinking their coffee!
My opinions are free - you'll get exactly what you pay for!
