Not sure if you've been down this path before, but I'm sure most everyone on here would say why would you wait 15k miles between oil changes? Seems the average is 5,000 - 7,500 miles. I personally do the changes every 5k also using LM 10w60.

We do ours in our shop in Stanton.

Though I'm not sure where @pizdous goes.

I'm the kind of guy that just doesn't care about averages... if you want to change your oil every 5000 miles, that is great... God bless America!

I've done several Blackstone reports that suggests with 7000, 9000, and most recently, 12,000 miles, there is still oil additive package left… I'm closing in on my first 15,000 mile interval and will be curious to see the report.

This car is my daily driver and I care for it with an open wallet. I drive it hard and regularly add oil. This is a great car, but it's not a show queen, not a rare bird, not an exotic, etc.

I try to do as much of it as I can myself because i enjoy working on cars. But when it's something i can't do i take it to Gintani. They recently installed my new clutch, lightweight flywheel and a few other parts and sensors i wanted replaced as preventative maintenance. They did an awesome job super fair on price and quick turnaround time.

I'd be interested to know how it turns out too.. I've always been curious how BMW or any car maker for that matter determines recommended intervals. I do mine every 5k simply because it's easy to remember and I am used to the old days of every 3-5k.

I used to daily mine, but since I have other cars it gets driven 1-2 weeks of the month and on road trips.

Love when I hear people happy with theirs and choose to daily them. I've gotten so much enjoyment out of mine for every mile of the 40k I've owned it.

Back on the OP topic though... there's really someone that has an over 200k mile E60 M5?! That's awesome!
