Very cool technology. I was unaware of this last point.

In spite of all this, we doubt BMW. We love the engineering that goes into the car but somewhere in our reptilian brain some atavism, some primordial fear, tells us the engineers canít be trusted, that if we want the car to last we must halve the oil change interval to 7500 mi or 5000 mi or whatever.
Wonderfully and amusingly stated.

I admit to a need to change the first oil fill long before the car phones home. Those shiny little metal particles bug me.
