How often do I need to change the oil in my BMW?

How much should I be changing the oil in my BMW? I want to make sure I'm taking good care of my car, but I also don't want to pay for extra oil changes if I don't have to.

You’ll probably need to change the oil in your BMW one to two times per year, depending on whether you use synthetic or conventional oil. Any more than that will probably be excessive.
But if you drive over 10,000 miles per year or regularly drive in extreme conditions, you might need to change your oil more frequently. Fortunately, your BMW will warn you when you need an oil change. And most mechanics will give you a sticker after a service appointment that indicates when you should get your next oil change.
