Would any of you seriously go 20,000kms between oil changes?

I just had my break-in service done two weeks ago, and my service computer says the next oil change is due at 23,000kms. I do not intend on waiting that long for the next oil change as it will probably be well over a year before I put that much mileage on my car.

I will do as I did with my E46 M3....oil changes every 7,000 to 10,000kms (depending on driving conditions and if I've done any driving schools or lapping days). If 6 months passes from my last oil change and I have not done that much mileage, then I'll change it anyway.

Can anyone tell me why I shouldn't continue to do oil changes like this with the E90 (other than it's more expensive to do it this way)?
