What are the oil change intervals on the e60 M5?

After the 1200 mile service, I'm assuming that the intervals are 15k miles, monitored and adjusted by the On Board Computer, right??

What oil do they use?? Is it the same stuff as was used in the e46 M3 and e39 M5?

Also, (I should know this) in the US, what is our free maintenance schedule? 3/36??


thanks in advance

After my 1200 mile service, the next service is showing due in another 16,000 miles. The UK oil specification is 10W-60.

I have been changing the oil on my M3 every 5,000 miles or so, always using synthetic. Does everyone plan to change only according to the car's indicator or on a more frequent schedule?
