Resetting service due date

Hi again, all! =)

Many many thank you to all for helpful advises! Sorry, couldn't thank each of you for replies =) Wow, I learned a lot from oil changes from all those replies! thank you =)

I just got my oil changed yesterday by local shop like you all recommended even though I only drove like 3000miles since the last oil change, 18 months ago. Haha! But, I think it will be a great idea to watch for a promotion offered by a dealer around me.

My another question is, I got the oil changed but the reminder service date is not updated. The guy at the shop said, it's not a good idea to manually change the date outside the dealer, it might mess up the other due dates. Is it true?

If not, how could I reset the date?

Thank you in advance! =)

What year is your car?

On LCI models to reset the next service mileage and date:
1. Insert your key fob.
2. Press the Start button but don't turn the ignition on (foot off the brake for auto or clutch for 6MT)
3. Once the xmas light show and dongs are done, press on the brake and hold the trip odometer reset for a few seconds until you will see the service menu on the dash
4. Use your stalk to navigate the service menu, use BC button to select an item you want to reset - press and hold BC button once you see the RESET option for a service item you selected.

No. Whoever told you that is a moron and is spewing typical "Only do maintenance here or your car will explode when you turn it on" crap.

If it's an iDrive based car, just push the knob in when on the main menu, then go to Service Interval, and reset it.

Hell, you even get to PICK THE DATE for this particular reset. I like to reset mine to my birthday every year, as that's when I go over the car with a fine-tooth comb and make sure everything's ready for the inspection.

The service menu has submenues for different items that fall under the service - oil, brakes, etc.
It's just a matter of navigating to the proper submenu to reset that particular item.

Mostly not true. Ok, it's possible you could mess up the other service reminders. It's possible you could put too much air in your tires or put gasoline in your crankcase, too, I suppose. If you're reasonably attentive, you shouldn't have a problem. If you're worried about it, write down the existing service reminders before you attempt the reset. The oil service reminder reset should have been included in the oil service.

That was great. I had only driven 10,000 on my brake fluid Had the oil changed at the dealer. Said no thanks to the brake fluid job. He said fine but he wouldn't reset the service light. What a jerk. BMW This might be my one and only BMW Porsche next. I will try and reset the date. My RED service light comes on when I drive the car.

Well, doing the brake fluid every 2 years is a good idea regardless of mileage. The fluid is hygroscopic, and the change is time based unless you have been really hard on the fluid (by tracking it, as an example).

Vehicle Check Reset Date

I have a 2011 328IX and I changed my oil and that was fine but when I went to change the
vehicle check reset in jumped to 07,2016. Would this be normal that this service is req'd
only two years.
I have 32,000Km and it went up to 48,000km.

Based on this can the system increase setting beyond a year and if so how to you backdate?

I am in the same situation with my 2011 328 Xdrive. Just had it services and now it says the next one will be in 2016. The dealer told me is not a problem... Anyway, I am planning to have a service every 6 months (10 000Kms).

I am using BMW' ol, the service is zone by a dealer. The Association of car's owners where I live recommends to change the oil/filter every 6 months even if BMW says 1 year. Just playing safe ...
