Mein Auto: 2011 Z4 sDrive 35i
Maintenance indicator won't move

I purchased a 2011 BMW Z4 sDrive35i in October 2012. The service indicator counted down the mileage as I drove the car. I then got an oil change at the BMW dealership February of this year at 32,371 miles. Over the course of the next several months the service interval never counted down, it stayed at 17,000 miles the whole time. I brought my car back to the dealership on May 22nd with about 1200 more miles on it. The dealership reset the system and said it should work fine now. When I left the dealership the service indicator was at 16,000 miles to my next service. It is now a month and a half later, I've driven over 200 miles and it is still sitting at 16,000 miles to my next service.

If I remember correctly the service interval would count down in 50 or 100 mile increments. Should I give this some more time or should I bring the car back to the dealership now and ask them to diagnose the problem and not just reset the system?

Just looked to my service ticket they performed a battery reset.

Thanks for any insight you can give me.

My 2011 35i counts down in 1000 mile increments at the top of the range 16K. 100 miles increments as you get closer to the bottom. Now @ 4200, I think this started at 5 or 6k miles.

Thank you very much. Sounds like I just need to be a bit more patient.
