What does this indicator warning mean?

Hi Everyone -

I have a 07 328xi. Recently had an oil change by a local mechanic who works exclusively on bmws. He's done many oil changes and it's always been fine although every once in a while the indicator light comes on because he's forgotten to reset something.

This time, immediately post the oil change, the warning light comes on whenever I start the car with an exclamation point suggesting service. I have attached a picture of the dashboard, because I don't see this graphic/image anywhere in the manual. Also, I brought my car back to the mechanic and he thought it was referencing the 'coolant' which he topped off, but this doesn't look like the coolant graphic to me.

Does anyone know what this image means?

Thanks in advance -

As noted, it's the cabin air filter replacement notice. $20 from Amazon for the filter (http://www.amazon.com/Mann-Filter-CU...KY7J48S8A32AQ4 fits mine, but does not necessarily fit yours). 5 minutes to change if you have the right size socket driver to remove the six screws that hold the cover in place. Possibly the easiest Do-It-Yourself maintenance item there is.

Bear in mind just changing the filter won't turn off that warning. You still have to reset the indicator. In fact, you don't have to change the filter at all to to turn off the warning, but it's a good idea to do so.
