A) Definitely is spelled wrong in your topic!

B) I'd change your oil now, and at 5k intervals regardless of what the indicator tells you.

C) Your indicator tells me you drive the car pretty hard, and rev the engine up a lot. Which lowers the life expectancy of your oil/filter, and therefore your indicator is telling you you need to change them sooner. In other words... it tells me you've been enjoying ripping around in your Bimmer!
