Zero oil usage

Never; so far. I had my first oil change at 14K, and now have 22K. From this point fwd, not going more than 10K between oil changes. Its most likely overkill, but just a personal piece of mind thing. Plan to keep her 8 yrs plus.;will have close to 200K by then.

Been seeing BMW's at auto actions with 200K-300K with no smoking engines and still driving well. Its all about the maintenance I'm sure.

At 22K you're almost halfway through your basic warranty. Since you drive a lot, do you have or not have the extended warranty or maintenance upgrade that it does not matter if you rack up many miles?

I have 3400 miles on my f31 and I didn't need to add any oils. However, the car tells me the next oil service is due in 4000 miles. Is it normal?
