Oil Change At 30.000 KM?

Hello!

I am very curious if we can debate this subject. The normal G30 car requires the oil change at 30.000 KM, first revision.

I am a bit worried to change it that far away in time, and I've read that the best way is to change it at 10.000 KM.

What is your opinion on this?

Thank you!

If I were to own the car, I would of done on at 5K, then another one at 10K and every 10K after that.

Since, I lease, I do whatever BMW recommends. Our "scheduled" services are included in the cost of the car in the US for 1st 4 years or 50K miles.

PS: This is the wrong section to post this question.

In real life, oil begins to age literally from the moment it moves from a sealed canister to the engine mazes. Its oxidation begins, accelerated by constant heating and cooling, detergents leave, dirt accumulates.
