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!!

Thanks for the help - makes perfect sense now....
