I'd bet it's at least twice as often, and what's your time worth to drop your car off at the shop an extra time
the cost/interval determinant is not the vehicle make, rather the type of oil/filter used.
i perform my own oil changes for all my cars, honda or bmw. filters are about the same, oil is the same by volume. my e90 uses approx. 2 extra qts., so it cost a bit more. only a bit.
but, lets leave honda out of this discussion.
the problem with the new 'g', in my opinion, is what i consider a flawed design. too much stroke to achieve displacement. too much displacement for a v6 layout. i suspect these engines will be short lived if tuned beyond stock.
plus the overall design seems out of whack. again, my opinion.
if you disagree, you can eat me.
