CBS condition based servicing is what all manufacturers use, which is dependant on how the car is driven, in this instance determines when the oil needs to be changed, and is why some people can wait as long as two years before the CBS says it needs an oil change. This is why manufacturers put a time period into the service schedule!!!!!!
This is why we are more prone to engine problems if we stick to the 15,000 mile interval. I personally feel that 5,000 miles is just right for an oil change using BMW LL-01 approved oil along with a genuine BMW oil filter.
Once a 6'er, always a 6'er.
