Is there any harm for not doing it? Also, what have you guys paid for just the filter? I was quoted $250 for just the oil and filter. Any advice is much appreciated.
$250 is RIDICULOUS. Most of us are paying about $70-90 for a post break-in oil change at the dealer. I'd suggest going to a different dealer or just check the dealer's website for service specials/coupons. Usually they will have for $69.95 or $79.95, though a few are $89.95 or $99.95. They also won't usually have a 1-series listed, but it's all the same as a 3-series, so that's the coupon most of us use. That is all for just your basic oil and filter change, not tranny or diff.
