Since the introduction of ultra-extended oil changes by BMW and other manufacturers, BM Tech have been assisting thousands of BMW, Mini, Audi and Volkswagen owners in keeping they’re engines reliable and saving them from unnecessary expense.
All it takes is a simple ‘in-between’ oil change every 6-12 months to keep engine life and performance at its optimum. Engine oil is the lifeblood of your car. Quite simply, it is the liquid engineering that determines the life of your engine.
Our knowledge acquired in servicing BMW, Mini, Audi and Volkswagen over the past 25 years has shown that vehicles which do many short trips or travel low mileage when combined with long service intervals, can potentially become unreliable and run the risk of serious internal engine damage.
Castrol Australia has also produced a letter about the serious issues which can occur. See service intervals vs oil change periods

Engine oil lubricates and cleans moving parts that generate heat. Over time, heat causes the oil to lose its ability to lubricate which in turn causes engine wear.
When you consider the tremendous forces that operate in your car’s engine, the best thing you can do to reduce unnecessary engine fatigue and keep your car running at its best is a regular oil change.
Depending on your specific model, this investment in your car’s engine starts at $180 and includes Castrol Full Synthetic Oil and an original oil filter replacement.
