I am currently working at BMW, so you’re wrong. You are hard headed. All technicians know exactly what I’m saying with the severe service and they too don’t extend oil changes. 5,000 max. Also it says do not follow the oil life monitor in the manual. Also Toyota is a fixed system it isn’t even an oil life system it’s set to trigger at 10,000 miles same as VW. You are not in the business and see nothing we see. We see all these engines here at BMW of people that follow the 15,000 mile intervals. It’s not too smart. Stop being so god **** hardheaded and listen to people that actually work in the dealerships. We share knowledge to protect the consumers of what not to do. Not all techs are trying to **** people. Go to YouTube and watch technician channels, they say the same thing I’m saying, it’s not just a coincidence, stop thinking you know everything about services.Wow. So, you have resorted to name-calling? Such a professional.
First, I don't care how many companies you've worked for and how long. But since you brought it up, the fact that you have worked for so MANY and NO LONGER do tells me everything I need to know about your "knowledge." It is old-school thinking that needs to die. And you're wrong, euro manufacturers are not the only ones keeping 10,000 mile OCI's. Ford and Nissan off the top of my head based on the owners manuals as well as Toyota.
Go away now.
