    Every since my 3 year free pms expired last year, I intend to just stick with the 10,000km oil change interval. I don't see the real need to follow the frequent 6 month interval especially this pandemic season where I don't get to use the car often.

    This Jalopnik article sums up my take on this frequent oil change interval myth

    "Yet this wasteful cycle continues largely because the automotive service industry, while fully aware of the technological advances, continues to preach the 3,000-mile gospel as a way to keep the service bays busy."

    Your DI engine will thank you for proper oil & closer change intervals.

    Since I'm not using my dear M3 a lot, I will do the oil change with the 10T km or 1 year interval whichever comes first, at least during this pandemic season.

    But yes it's true that a good regular oil change is good for keeping those carbon deposits from building up with DI engines

    I have "cheated". I am now past two months or so but I am shy of 2,000 km to make it 10,000 km so with my regular route again of about 160 km weekly, I'll soon change my oil.

    The lazy bug got me again!

    What's your current version? If you have FW older than v31 then you have to upgrade to v31 before installing v70.

    Are you going to DIY the kit install? If you're having a shop install it then most of the time they already have the FW and the upgrade is part of the installation.

    Sadly the FW source server I got my installers from got shut down so the links I have are useless.

    I'll check my archives if I still have v31. I only have v70 on my active drive.

    And yes FW update muna before installing the kit. I was running for months on v70 while waiting for supplies to arrive.
