Is this true? I mean, I know BMWs are more expensive to maintain and I am willing to spend the money to a certain limit. But I am definitely not willing to spend $500 on oil change! Can you give me real figures, or links to websites where I can check the costs of regular maintenance on a BMW (preferably an E90)?

Not sure who told you information about oil changes, but they are totally incorrect...Like any other purchase, make sure that you do your homework? I am assuming that this is your first BMW?
