Is what it is - I wont keep it for ages, so as long as it has a dealer service history and the idrive is accurate for the 5 or so years I have it that will do me...
Yeah, I know where you're coming from. I'm planning on keeping my car long term so want to do an annual oil change irrelevant of what the car is telling me, 18k miles just seems like a hell of a long time to be running on the same oil but I fully appreciate it's condition based.
