Yes, your car will let you know when service is due - except perhaps the low mileage oil change which is due after one year.

Please read your Service/Warranty manual as it explains "Condition Based Service". Basically, oil change mileage is initially set at around 15,000 and can vary up or down according to how the car is driven.

Also, see "Service Requirements" in your owner's manual to learn how to read the miles remaining to, or date of, each upcoming service on your iDrive or OBC.
