You must have had at least one year since your last oil change, but only have driven less than 6k. = free oil change

So if you had one year between your last free oil change, but drove 6001 miles your not entitled to a free oil change.
Our dealer still does a annual oil change for our '12 X5 35i under the free maintenance plan even though we do about 12k miles per year. I asked our service adviser about it when we bought the car and he was very positive about it (we've been using the same service adviser for about 10 years). It's usually followed by the computer-indicated oil change about 4 months later. Makes for an odd 12-4-12 month type of pattern.
