I've changed mine twice now, and let BMW do it two or three times. Did the same thing with my previous 2 BMWs over the past 10 years. Probably could be lass anal about it but I track and autox occasionally, so it make me feel better. If you're planning on keeping the car more than 4 years, as i am this one, I would recommend it. If you're leasing, and not going to keep the car, or own it but planning on trading it in before the warranty runs out, or don't track it, you'll probably be fine just letting BMW do their thing and calling good.
