It's crazy how much they charge for synthetic oil here in Europe. Just did my own oil change at 6300km, was easy just like any other BMW I've done. Luckily I get the oil cheap at the US Army Garrison here and ordered the filter through Bimmian.com.
Was honestly alarmed at how cruddy the oil and filter looked with it this new and the fact that I only got 5.5 quarts out of it (takes 7 normally). If anyone is considering changing their oil between scheduled intervals I say do it.
