Hi, I own 2008 135i that I bought trough the Euro delivery program. Great car, I love it. I bought the car because I like it and no so much because of the "free" maintenance. I change the oil my self after about 4,000 mile because it was not covered under the "free" maintenance. Then I brought to the dealer for first year service which they change the oil "the first time". The second oil service was done at 20,000 miles. After the change I drove the car home, about 10 miles from the dealer. While I was detailing the car I looked through the oil fill cover and saw that the oil looked dirty, (really black). (I am doing my own oiled change on my BMWs for many years.) I let the car cool, and opened the drain plug for a sample. To my surprise the oil was very dirty, black, and looked like it was never changed. I think that after 10 miles the oil might not look new but also did not expect that it would be soooooooooooooo dirty. Brought the sample to the dealer and asked if this is how new oil should look like after driving the car 10 miles. They were surprise themselves and told me that I should change my oil more often. (Really? this is the dealer telling me that? after all they so proud of the "free" maintenance.) They change the oil again, this time I was in the garage with them. Drove the car about 50 miles, checked the oil again and this time it was a lighter. (still darker then new but much lighter.) Since there is no more dip sticks its hard to tell how the oil looks like after an oil change and who is crazy enough to really drain a bit after a change? Well I did. I know that when oil is being changed there is probably a quart or more left, but still, from my experience I had never seen such dirty oil 10 miles after oil change. My other high miles BMW do not look like that after oil change. Does anyone know if the oil can look so dirty after oil change?
