Greg has wisely added his average MPH, and that's key. Very early BMW conditional oil service calcualtions were rumored to be rather complex, but in later years BMW supposedly went with a simpler calculation based soley on MPG. The theory is that the lower your MPG, the harder you are driving your car and the sooner the oil will need to be changed. I might have the highest mileage M3 in the US so here's what my stats are:

Time owned: 6 months
Current mileage: 14,473
Miles untill next service: 1,700 (or 05/2010, whichever comes first)
Approx miles @ next service: 16,200 (my 1200 mile service was at exactly 1200 miles so this is very close to 15,000 miles since the break-in service)
Driving style (mild / aggressive): 80/20 (but much of it very fast!)
Driving split (highway / city / drifting): 80/19/1
Avg MPG to-date: 18.8
Avg MPH to date: 48.6
