Personally, I think 15k b/n oil changes is too long no matter who makes the oil. I change my oil about double what they suggest, and some may think that isnt enough. But, if they are paying for it, and you are not planning on keeping the car more than 100k or so, then follow their plan. I wouldn't pay much for a used car with 100k miles that has the original tranny/diff fluid and has only had 6 or 7 oil changes. The only thing that has really change significantly in the last ten years is BMW paying for the oil changes and the fluid change intervals. The parts and oil are pretty much the same. Follow the money to the answer. Just my .02 cents.
