Mein Auto: 2007 BMW 335I Sedan

I have a 2004 325I with 6,700 miles. When I first purchased the car new in May 2004, the service indicator appeared to be set at 15,000 miles. Over the last 8 months, this number has steadily decreased to its current level of 7350 miles. I would assume this is casued by limited highway driving - most of my miles are city (45 mph or less w/ stops).

Seems like a dramatic decrease - is this normal/reasonable?

Once my actual miles exceed the miles noted by the indicator, what service would my dealer (Irvine) provide? The way the indicator is dropping, I might need service tomorrow...
