Just noticed this problem this afternoon, and I had serviced my car 3 months ago. What's wrong with it? Is it still good for driving? I can go to dealer on Friday, but tomorrow I have to drive about 150 miles. There is no other warnings. Is it safe for driving?

Seems not to be an isolated incident...

It is supposed to come on about every 25,000 miles and is just an inspection. No idea why it would suddenly come on with that date.

I had that problem in my old 2012 535i, its a software issue, the dealer has to update the software to fix the problem. Your car is perfectly safe to drive on long trips.

Gotta ask: What is your system date [date car displays]? As the battery degrades, time & date are often the first to go. Um....wondering how to check that battery? Well, [click here] - first video'll do ya.
