It's too early to tell, and only future top ups will tell, but in the meantime,,,I'm a happy camper
On my N52 E90, I got much better fuel economy and performance (seems to have freed up the engine) after my first ol change at 10,000kms. After that, I did not notice any improvement from subsequent oil changes.

I think it was more related to break-in oil and the break-in process itself.
