My m3's first oil change was when it had 3000km and now it is at 10,000km. It is in China so I don't really trust what the dealership people tell me. Can anyone tell me how often I should oil change?

In Belgium.... with BMW dealer they say....the car will tell you that.(don't worry)
This depends...from your driving style.(S-65///M3 engine will consume a little oil)
But make sure,only Castrol 10W60 for M-engines !!!

On my previous 4 bimmers I would change oil on my cost between the BMW factory service intervals or approximately every 7,500 miles.

Awesome guys thanks for the info. Does driving habits effect the frequency of oil change?
