Originally posted by vettenuts: I find this very interesting. I am currently looking at a new 325i for my wife and BMW insists they do the oil changes (I usually insist I do them). Based on this thread, it sounds like the oil they are using at 15,000 miles may not be cutting the mustard, now what???

No just run what's recommended. Yes, you can pay for extra oil changes anytime...and they won't reset the service light indicator.
