adding oil and oil changes

Was wondering if any dealerships in bergen county add oil or conduct oil changes free since my car is leased. If not, where is a reputable place to go to get my oil changed? I'm about to hit the 7,000 mile mark and heard its best to change the oil every 5000 miles or 6 months (which ever comes first)

You'll never get a free change outside of the interval.

Isn't there a once a year change? Or is it once a year or you next service, which ever comes first?

Not that I know of. 15000 miles is the standard oil change interval.

Yes there is, it's called a LOW MILEAGE oil change.

Becasue I have very low mileage on my cars, I take it in once a year.

It is covered by BMW.

Interesting. Makes no sense that they would do this though.

I agree, but they have been doing this for both M3s.

One thing, they don't reset the computer for the OIL Change, so it still shows I will have to change it in like 11000 miles. But, it will be like 2 years before I hit that number.

So back on track. I used to do the oil change myself on my a4 but I got a crazy schedule now. Anyone recommend any place to go get this done? I want a good job as far as the oil change. I guess I'll swing by the dealership and pick up oil and add it myself
