I think you misunderstand how the "service indicator" functions. Think of it as "countdown clock" to service. As you drive and add miles on the odometer, they are subtracted from the service indicator. Therefore at any given time, add the two numbers together and they should total around 15,000, give or take. The offset is the car's computer factoring in your driving habits to add or subtract miles until you need service. So, you still have 7,350 miles left before your car needs service. At your current average, that's still another 7 or 8 months away.... I don't think you need to make an appointment just yet .

Hope this makes sense.

Oh, and welcome to Bimmerfest!!
