1st Break in oil change

Hey guys,

I know this may be old news and I thought just wanted to share. I recently just got my 1st oil change and boy, it is a big difference rather retaining with the original factory oil until next year.
It just makes the engine run and breathe smoother like silk. On the factory oil, I felt like there was something holding back the engine like there was a resistance on it.
I have been avg 23mpg city driving on Eco Pro with the factory oil, sometimes I switch to sport mode to jack rabbit if I feel like it. So far I have been getting around 220-230 miles on a 65% in the gas tank weekly.
Btw, when using the ASS, I felt like it was smoother with the oil change.

Trip cost to a local BMW Indy
6 qrts $50
BMW filter $14
Service $52
Awesome customer service, with car insight knowladge $0

Total=$116 compared to an estimate at $180 at the dealer

Hopefully I would see improvement overtime,
