How often? If you're going to do it more than recommended, it's going to end up being a guess as to what you think is best.

I'm sure you know that BMW's recommended schedule of maintenance isn't a continuum - from minimum to maximum. It's one point.

Isn't going to hurt anything, except your free time, pocketbook, and the environment.

FWIW, I change cars every 3 years. I wouldn't personally drive a BMW outside of warranty for too long.

Go 50i or go home
