It's a simple enough question, but one that is a little more complex than you might think. BMWs are different than most other cars, engineered to use synthetic oils and fluids that require less changing than traditional oils. They're designed to have 12,000 and up to 15,000 mile, roughly one driving year, oil change intervals. In fact, even BMW owner's manuals recommend an oil service every 15,000 miles. And on most BMW cars, the reminder lights on the instrument cluster are set to remind the driver at this interval as well.

 

However, changing the engine oil sooner can only help prolong engine life and performance, despite the cost. But despite the old wisdom of changing your oil every 3,000 miles, as vehicle technology has improved, that number is outdated for most modern vehicles. It's become much more economical and environmentally friendly to get your engine oil changed about every 7,500 to 10,000 miles depending on driving habits and climate.

 

For example, city commuters or people who live in a more temperate climate have more leeway when it comes to when they should get an oil change. For those living in less forgiving climates or with tougher jobs, an oil change every 5,000 miles might be more in line for both your vehicle and your wallet.

 

Think it might be time to get your car's oil changed, but unsure if the time is right? Keep in mind these four things:  


  • Know what kind of driving you do
  • Record when the last time you had your vehicle's oil changed
  • Change your motor oil according to the auto manufacturer's recommendations
  • And, if you're still unsure, ask a professional at BMW of Roanoke to take a look
