The dealer does that for you, did you change your own oil?

On the previous models this was easy (a cheap tool could be used). Now the dealer has to connect a computer and give some pretty advanced commands. You can probaly find software and interface on the open marekt for a DIY.

Hi kreate2
Welcome aboard

Press the tacho reset button in the instument cluster about 10 seconds with the key to on position, until "service" appears, then change selection with a sigle push
until "engine oil" appears. Keep pushing the "reset " ask yes? and that's all. Next oil change after 25000 Km appears on the idrive "service"menu.
Beware, not to reset another function, there is no way to restore a reseted item.

Regards.

Does this really work????

I wouldn't even try it, 'cause I trade my car every 2 or 3 years.

I usually find something that the could improve at the dealers service.

Why try to save <?50 for a hillbilly bulls**t trick like this?????

I did it on mine three times.

once for oil change, (second change - 40000 km - 2 years)
once for brake fluid change (2 years) not changed Because of 40000 km.
& once for the microfilter (not changed - Just cleaned)

It works.
Try it, but don't reset any item. Just to understand the way it works.

So nice!!!

When the warrenty and the free service is ended, I will do the oil changes, and change Micro filter etc.. The brakefuild and other bigger jobs, I will let my dealer take care of!

But a simple thing as a oil change you can do your selfe !

Thanks
