I just had an oil change at the dealer last week at 6500 miles. I paid about $90. You don't want to reset the indicator. Let it continue to count down to your freebie at 15k.

I normally do my own oil changes by sucking the oil out through the dip stick tube. Since I can't do that on the new X3 I let them do the change. I refuse to loosen another drain plug on a BMW. Steel plug and aluminum pan mean just a matter of time. It took me 25 years to strip one but I eventually did, on my M5.
