I just got a reminder from the BMW site saying i'm due for my 6000 mile engine oil change. When I went in at 3000 miles to the dealer, the dealer just added engine oil and didn't drain it out. Is that right? Also i called and asked them if i should come in for an engine oil change but they said it's unnecessary. I bought some engine oil. Should I add engine oil to it or go to some place to drain it out and add engine oil?

Do oil change on your own at every 5k miles or so,and go to the dealer at every 15K miles service to get everything reset and documented !


ps: yes you can add oil if near the lower mark on the stick , and make NO mistake if you LOVE your car, but do use Mobil 1 Synthec for the oil changes - it burn cleaner with less ash compared to the Castrol .
