what should you go by?? Do you guys trust the computer to tell you when you need an oil change. I have just hit 4K on non syn oil 15/40.. My computer still has three of the five green bars left. Has anyone had a sample checked when going by the computer???
My 98 328 goes 10,000 with Mobile1 0W40, change out the filter at 5,000. I recently changed out my valve cover gasket and it looked very clean in there. I do 90% hi-way driving. If I did mostly city driving I would change more often, depends on your driving conditions and if you use synthetic or not

.............According to a technical article posted at Pelican Parts, most synthetic oils can go 25K miles before breaking down.
