As far as I know (My cousin told me this and he has a MB C-280 and a BMW 528), both of the MB & BMW have a maintance indicator light in the gauges. The lights will turn from green to red. When red light is on, it means maintance (oil change) is required. But unlike the similar feature that you can find on a Honda, the indicator on MB and BMW is actually detecting the condition of the motor oil inside the engine, where as Honda's indicator just simply counting every 3K miles. So, if your driving habit is very gentle, 14k miles per oil change in a MB or BMW is absolutely okay.
