This is a question. http://www.bmwusa.com/Vehicles/X5/30i/Warranty.htm
(Full maintenance link) tells about 4y/50000miles full maintenance. Is
that for the new models or all X5s? I am not able to find any info on
2002 models maintenance at the official site. I guess I'll just call
customer care at BMW and ask about that on Monday.
I have a 2002 325ci (service date 12/15/01) and was able
to get inspection 1 completed just before the maintenance
expired (12/15/04). At that time, I still had a year left on the
manufacturers warranty (12/15/05). Sometime between the
2002 models and now, they changed to 4yr maintenance
coverage. Unless it's different for the X5s, I think your out
November for the 325i). Thing is, I only cover about 5k miles a year
in each since I split driving between them - that spreads out the
service intervals quite a bit. I may never get to use the free
maintenance at this rate.

I have a similar "problem" with a daily driver 328i, the Z4 and a BMW
motorcycle. Buried in the fine print in the manual should be a statement
about yearly oil changes & I believe the dealers will provide it as part of
the covered maintenance. Maybe you could negotiate a price discount on your
next new BMW on this basis!
