This is pretty much the case. There have been guys on the E90 side who sent their oil at a different intervals. and it starts to break down around 8,000 miles but is still good for most. At 10,000 miles or so, the oil starts to get a little nasty with a lot of wear metals per Blackstone reports but the senor still say's 15,000 miles for an oil change.
Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
