In Reply to: First oil change question... posted by scott on February 26, 2001 at 06:34:37:

When I bought my motorcycle, the manufacturer recommended that I changed the oil at 1000 miles. When I did, I noticed that the oil was full of metal filings. Has anyone noticed metal in the oil during the first oil change on their z3? If so, is it a good idea to pay extra and change the oil at 1000 miles? TIA


When I asked the same question, the Service Manager told me to have it changed by them between 3000-4000 miles and of course I would have to pay for it. I think I am going to change my own oil around 2500 miles and use Mobile 1.
