My former BMW got fresh oil all (30.000km) 18.000mls, is was sold in best
health with 210.000km 131000mls. My recent S60D5 gets an oil service, as
sheduled, all 20.000km (12.500) and has just turned the 170.000km
Doing more, shure, does not harm, but does not add health to your car. So
all in all, its a waste of money.
It is better not to take the cheapest oil, look at the specifications, and
look at the amount of oil in your engine. It is much more harmful to have
less oil in your engine, than "old" oil. Some companies here have now
oil-services sheduled all 50.000km (31.000mls!!!)
Hint: in new automatic gearboxes you don`t have the change to change your
oil yourself, because you need special machines to evacuate the oil out of
