I had the dealer do an out-of-cycle change at 4,000 (just before a long trip). I'll have the second change done on schedule at about 15,000. After that, I'll probably change it every 7,500.

It's a lot more expensive to change than other cars due to the synthetic oil requirement, but I plan on keeping this car for a long time, so I think it's worth it.
Correct. Only M Cars.
