I'm going to give you some advice, that some people say is a little overkill.
IGNORE THE LIGHTS. Change your oil every 4500-5000 miles -- REGARDLESS of what the lights tell you.
Do you really want to drive for 15K plus miles on one oil change?
I let my lights run out to red, then reset them with a peake tool. But it takes nearly 20K miles to run them to red.

I pay $90.00 for an oil change here in Minneapolis. Not at the dealer, but at a service garage that only works on BMW's. How can I avoid paying this much. I also currently have 3 green light now on a 1998 528i, what does that mean? I don't have a manual.
