[Services] - Should I wait for my oil service light to come on before I get an oil change?

On some of the later model BMW's the oil service light is set to allow as much as 15,000 miles between oil changes. Since we see and service vehicles that are higher in mileage we have first hand knowledge of what damage 15,000 mile oil changes can cause. We recommend not going over 7,500 miles on the synthetic oil. If you are using Petroleum oil then it should be changed every 3,000 miles.
