Whats the longest period (Miles) you've driven your car after a computer stated oil service? Meaning how many miles over the computer stated service interval did you drive your car before you went in for the actual service?

90 miles I guess

I had a friend that had an appointment for his 14,000 mile oil change a week in advance, and when he went to his scheduled time, he was 20 miles shy of 14,000 miles. BMW turned him away and told him to come back at 14,000 miles. BMW service sux.....

In my Acura CL I drove like 5000 miles after the indicated oil changed interval. End of lease was coming up and I didn't want to spend the $ on it.

Time to get a new dealership or do some spirited driving around the lot to get those last few miles down fast :D

so you guys actually wait the 15,000 miles to change the oil? i was thinking about bringing in my car to get and oil change but i only have about 7,000 miles on it. 15,000 sounds way too long to wait. how much will they charge me if i dont wait the required miles?
