6 Series
The BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

oil change intervals

Does anyone else change their oil more than the 15k miles or 1 year short mileage ?
I only average about 5k-6.5k miles per year. Is it worth it to get oil changed every 6 months or wait for computer warning or 1 year ?

since our cars use pure synthetic there is not as much issue with breakdown over time... so waiting until the computer says so is ok... if you want to do it earlier, some of the time your SA will agree to do it for free if you have a good relationship...
