Brake Fluid Service

I had service light on a few weeks ago. The detail was for brake fluid service. I took it in for service last week and invoice shown 'performed brake flush'. Three days later, the service light was on again and it's still for brake fluid service. SA asked me to bring it back. Just want to see if anyone experienced same thing. Thanks

They probably forgot to reset the service interval for the brake flush on the computer.

Although how can you trust them to say "oh, yeah, we did the brake flush".

Did your invoice list part numbers for brake fluid? Actually list "X bottles of BMW fliuid, P/N xx-xx-x-xxx-xxx"???
