Imagine this: I'm in a group on facebook called "Mileage impossible" and some of the european guys in there are telling me they have 30000km and 40000km oil drain intervals. I need to get one of them to send me proof of this. BMW in the USA recommended 15k oil intervals on their cars here in the usa, but i think they swapped to 10k oil changes around 2014.
I agree change every 5000 miles or 6 months and move on. Oil will be like an extra $500 over 200k miles, but a motor will typically be $5000-$7000 for a 4 cylinder.
