I get why you're chiming in -- and not trying to be too confrontational -- but I'm not a mechanic, so whatever I
think isn't going to make the decision right or wrong. I freely admit it was all about old school thinking and feeling comfortable, and I just wasn't comfortable going 15k with the original oil.
And I somewhat buy into the theory that BMW only care about the first 4 years or 50k that they're responsible for. It makes sense. Making a car that will last forever isn't in their best interest.
My question wasn't whether or not I should have the oil changed; it was: Since the computer wasn't reset, is there any way to guarantee the work was done other than watching it happen?
