I don't know what oil the '98s had from the factory - I didn't address that. I agree 10k is too long with regular oil and BMW has played some games there. I disagree that other manufacturers recommend 3k oil changes - only the fanatical car buffs do. Most engineers I speak to at the "Big Three" suggest more like 5-7k with coventional oil.

In my post, I was only speaking about Y2K BMW vehicles with synthetic.
