well, i have 5000 miles on my 98 528 sport with 2 bars left..
basically, the car takes a bunch of factors (frequency of driving,temp,driving style etc..)
that determine when each green bar is removed..
i live in Mass and expect all bars to be out by 6000 miles..
previously in my 93 325is, i could have drove 7700 miles before all lights were out..
as for an oil change-its your call but for oil changes that are considered covered by scheduled maintenance, you have to wait til those lights are gone.
