I'd think that's just to save face. The 2014 DI/FI engines are the exact same engines as the 2013 cars, on which they're sticking with the 15,500 mile intervals.

They've been back pedaling either way. "lifetime" trans/diff fluid became 100,000 miles on older and newer cars.

The fact remains that this is a totally different slate of engines. And either way, none of this adds credibility to the OP.

You know I generally advocate against following huge OCI recommendations, even from the manufacturer, without guidance from oil analysis. That case seems airtight regardless of BMW's hemming and hawing over its new DI + turbo engines, and it certainly doesn't mean we should listen to Mike Miller's RedLinesturbation.

I have just purchased a 2006 M3 Convertible, my question is how do you get the bluetooth to work, it came with the cell phone installed and has the two buttons on the mirror for 911 and for roadside service. Can the dealer give me more info or is their another way.

For the first two minutes the car is on, the module is in pairing mode and you can pair with it from your phone. Once you've done it once, it'll connect automatically going forward.

The bluetooth pairing code should be in your owners manual packet on an individual white glossy card. If it isn't (if that's lost), it's on the module itself, which is located in the trunk behind the side panel.
