Blackstone Oil Report
10,200 miles
Mobil 1 0W-40
Make-up Oil Added: 4.5 qts inc. 3 qts Mobil 1 EP 10W-40

Comments from Blackstone:
Nothing too unusual showed up here. Most wear metals read a little higher than average, though this is to be expected with the longer than average oil run. Universal averages show typical wear from the BMW 5.0L after ~ 3,500 miles on the oil. All wear is still reading close enough to averages that we don't think any problems are developing. The oil was normal in viscosity and free of any harmful contaminants. The TBN was strong at 5.1, showing plenty of active additive left. 1.0 is too low. All in all, things look pretty good here. Try 12,000 miles on the next oil.

Nice data, so perhaps a filter change halfway thru would be a good idea?

I've never been one to change filters between oil changes. I was once told by someone in the industry NOT to change filters if the oil change interval was in the 6K miles range because the filter would actually work better with more accumulated mileage, yet be in no danger of bypassing the oil. I once cut a used filter open on my M3 after 7.5K miles and pulled out the media - the pleats looked clean as a whistle.

Contact these guys for a mail-in kit and instructions, FAQ etc.:

Go for the "Dyson Analysis" also - it's worth it the first time around.
