I was recentley having a conversation with a mechanic who specialise in performance cars and he was shoked to hear that the first oil change wasn't until 10,000 miles...

He recommended at 5000 miles to change the oil to a full synthetic and replace the air filter as this should be whent the engine is seated and has been run-in enough...

Any thoughts...

alss good and said but.....

what about the warranty and the overall good of the engine... will it have been a bad idea to have done the early oil change in a couple of years???

Are BMW going to turn around and say the warranty has been invalidated????

Is the service receptionist right is saying 10,000 miles has been specified because thats when BMW know is the right time... or are they just watching the bottom line as they realised this TLC package could end up costing them a couple of quid....
