Fortunately, I was able to get one of the BMW service packages added after the fact, and have this cost credited to the purchase price; so these oil services won't hurt as much. Still, I can buy some really, really good wines here for less than the Castrol...
I say "Pass" on the oil change wait for 8-15k
... use the money for some good wine and cheese to celebrate the momentus breakin moments
