It has been 1 year and 7000 miles since the last oil change. 1 year and 7000 miles of BMW ownership.
Hi, I am Bogdan and I invite you to follow along with the 530d servicing, repairs and mods.
What products were use:
- Shell Helix ULTRA ECT C3 5W-30
- Mann Filter 703/3x
Long service intervals vs shorter intervals?
This is where I might overspend, overservice and overthink it, but because of :
- the type of driving that I do
- the mileage of the car
- the Crankcase Dilution Phenomenon
You will see me changing the oil every year or 6000 miles.
On a personal note, I can say that I see a difference in the density/structure of the oil from the first oil change when the CBS (condition based servicing) plan was used (2 years ~15.k miles) vs this one done at 7.k mls.
