Try this:

Step 1
Insert key into slot
Step 2
Press start/stop button without depressing clutch/brake and wait for the service reminder to disappear.
Step 3
Immediately after service reminder goes out, press and hold the odometer reset. After 3 secs a warning triangle will appear, keep the odo. button pressed and after another 2-3 secs the Oil can will appear. I f you hold it too long (10 secs in total) you will overshoot the runway and some German writing will appear giving the software level/ can bus etc. of the car. Go back to the beginning and start again.
Step 4
You are now in the service menu, use the toggle switch on indicator stalk to scroll up/down through the various service items.
Step 5
When you have the item you want to reset showing, press the BC button on end of indicator stalk. Reset should now appear in the display. Press in and hold the BC button for 2-3 secs and a clock will start whirling around and hey presto, its done
Step 6
You can now either scroll up/down to select another item (as in step 4) or you can press the start/stop button to exit.

BTW, I don't know if that'll work for your E60, since this is a E90 forum.

I feel so stupid! I went to the dealer since my "service" light was on.....they said I needed the microfilter changed and break fluid flushed. ($192.00) After finding out how much the filter really costs and how easy it is to change, feel really stupid....I love to do my own work, had the car for two years now and do my own oil changes....etc, I paid $27.00 for labor and $51.00 for the part....that hurts, I would've enjoyed doing it myself and saved money at same time.....thanks for posting the reset instruction for mircrofilter, would you believe they did the work and never reset it? I didn't know what the symbol was unitil it was red, did my researchand thanks to these post I found out how to do it and I did it myself!!! Thanks
