My Ride: '99 328i 300K miles
...and a couple of other reasons to change it:

I read here that one fanatic had a no-start issue because of an original fuel filter not being changed up to 130K miles.

Also, when I did mine after an indefinite period of time (got the car as third owner), I got an extra 1.5 mpgs., so even if you pay someone to do it, you get a pretty short payback time.

If you don't know when it was done, start logging your mpg/mph data, change the filter, and compare the you'll find a noticeable one.

Jfoj, I'm not sure about the 30K mile interval though...I'm thinking it's an Inspection II item, which I believe means 60K miles.
