how many quarts do BMW normally put in for a oil change?? and how long will be the next oil change (months & miles)??? I'm just curious. I got a 99 323i early August with 41k miles, after 4mos. the car now has 48k miles and I still have not have an oil change, since I don't need it yet as per the BMW Dealer. Again thank you for all your help :thumbup:

u should change your oil at lease every 5000 if u love your car and want it to last. i won't recommend going 15000 as bmw said. even if the oil will last the oil filter will not last. that's my .02. i change my at 5 grand and i'm a manager at a oil shop.

I had to put in a little over 6 quarts to reach the mid-point on the dipstick, for my oil change on an '02 325i... your manual should list how much oil the car uses. Curious thing was that we also did a change that day on my friend's '02 M3 which only took 5.5 quarts.
