Since I got my 2002 330i I change the oil at 1200 and now it has around 5000. It's a weekend car only, I plan to change the oil soon. However, it's been over a year or so since its last oil change. So the question is does oil have a shelf life? If yes then how long? Does anyone have info on this? Thx.

The maintenance warranty allows for an oil change once a year or every 15,000 miles, whichever comes first on previous models. I don't know about '03 or '04.

It is recommended to change oil once per year, regardless of mileage so sounds like you are due. That said, your dealer should be doing this for free. As blkonblk says above. Dealer owes you a freebee at least every year. Unless you're past the maintenance period.
