BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

Mein Auto: 118
Exclamation 118 service reminder reset

Just had a service on my 2007 118I done by a NON BMW mechanic. He was unable to reset the service reminder. Does anyone know how to reset it. I have found that if I took it to a BMW dealer they would refuse to reset it on bull**** grounds.Robin
