Copper likely from a cooler.. otherwise great metal wear rates.
Oil in serviceable condition.

Nice, looks like 10k is very reasonable.


09 Lincoln MKZ AWD 97k - M1 AFE 0w30
12 KIA Sedona 91k - PP HM 10w30
09 Ford Focus 131k - Supertech FS HM 5w30
00 Chev Lumina 201k - Supertech FS HM 5w30
04 Jeep Grand Cherokee gone but not forgotten.

My son has been following the OLM intervals of @15k miles on his 2009 328i using 5W-30 or 0W-30 BMW synthetic. When we had to R$R the valve cover at 108k miles the valvetrain looked perfect. a 10K OCI is more than sufficient.


Mine:
2014 M235i
1999 Wrangler Sahara
1995 318ti Club Sport

Wife's:
2009 Cooper Clubman

Son's
2009 328i

Buy what makes you smile...

MCompact -- after seeing those pictures and reading your post, I am no longer skeptical of the 15k mile oil change on the N52 engine. These engines aren't hard on the engine oil, especially an oil designed for it.
