BMW Service Interval Indicator

I recently had my CPO 2011 535i xdrive serviced by the dealer I bought it from in August, 2014. It had an oil service and a recall addressed. Since then, when I start the car, it is telling me the next service is in 15k miles or April, 2015. I plan to change the oil every 7,500 miles since I drive the car about 400 miles +/- per week.
Don't know if these oil changes will be warranty or not since the car says 15k miles as the next service interval, so will I be paying for the interim oil service even if I am still in the 4yr/50k warranty range?

Yes. BMW only pays for condition based services.

From my experience the next oil change date the car gives you is not be all end all. As you drive more the computer will log more engine cycles and miles, which should trigger an earlier oil change alert to the dealership. The date you have is based on regular/average driving miles and time.
